Everything Loaf

A combination of my previous banana coconut bread and coconut chia muffins recipes:

In a medium sized bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together:
~ 1/3 cup coconut flour
~ 1/3 cup spelt flour
~ 1/4 cup almond meal
~ 1/4 cup shredded / desiccated coconut
~ pinch of cinnamon
~ 1/2 tsp baking powder
~ 1/2 tsp sea salt
~ 1/4 cup macadamias, chopped

Whiz the following ingredients in a blender:
~ 1 ripe banana
~ 3 eggs
~ 3 dsp rice malt syrup (or panella/rapadura/coconut sugar)
~ 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly
Add in 3/4 cup frozen blueberries and mix through (you could use raspberries too)
Pour into a loaf tin and bake for 45 mins at 160C (cover with foil after 20 mins to avoid the top burning)

Coconut, Chia & Almond Muffins

coconut chia almond muffin blueberry

These are a great wheat-free, dairy free, protein packed muffin – they last really well in an air tight container as well.  I have also made this as a single cake, which is easier to get out of the tin!
I’ve adapted this recipe from one I found on The Chia Co’s website, as I didn’t have all the ingredients required, so improvised here and there.  You could use raspberries instead of blueberries, swap macadamias with walnuts or leave both of them out completely!

In a small-med bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together:
~ 1/3 cup coconut flour
~ 1/3 cup buckwheat flour (I used Orgran’s buckwheat pancake mix)
~ 1/4 cup almond meal
~ 1/4 cup shredded / desiccated coconut
~ 1/8 cup coconut sugar
~ pinch of cinnamon
~ 1/2 tsp baking powder (since my buckwheat flour mix had baking powder in it already, I only used 1/4 tsp)
~ 1/2 tsp sea salt
~ 1/4 cup macadamias, chopped

In a medium bowl add the wet ingredients (in this order!)
~ 3 eggs – beat for 1 minute with an electric beater so they are light and fluffy
~ 1/3 cup coconut cream
~ 2 tbsp chia seeds (you can soak these for 5 minutes in 2 tbsp water so they are of a gel consistency)
~ 1/3 cup rice malt syrup – I used Pure Harvest brand which I got in the health food isle of Coles for around $3-$4
~ 1 tbsp honey (or alternatively add another tbsp of coconut sugar to the dry ingredients)
~ 1/5 cup coconut oil, melted
~ 1 tsp vanilla bean paste

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and fold until combined (don’t overmix!)
I also added about 1/4 cup frozen blueberries for a different variety
Spray 10-12 muffin/friand pans with coconut spray 
Bake at 160C (fan forced) or 175 (regular) for 25 mins
Half way through, when the muffins have browned slightly on top, cover them with baking paper for the remainder of the cooking
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before popping them out of the tins

The best chocolate brownie

This recipe was taken from Gary Mehigan’s recipe in his Comfort Food book, however I’ve change the nut and chocolate elements.
I often make this for people’s birthdays in the office and it always goes super fast!

~ 150g butter, melted
~ 310g caster sugar
~ 55g dutch cocoa
~ 3 eggs
~ 90g plain flour (I use Orgran Wheat Free Flour and it comes out perfectly)
~ 1/3 tsp baking powder
~ 175g white chocolate
~ 80-100g macadamias

Grease and line a 20cm sqaure baking tray (or 30cm x 15cm)
Mix the sugar, cocoa and melted butter with an electric beater
Add in the eggs one at a time and beat until light and fluffy
In a separate bowl sift the flour and baking powder
Add to the cocoa mix and fold through (careful not to over-mix the air out)
Add the chopped nuts and chocolate and mix gently
Pour mixture into baking tray
Bake at 160°C for 25-30 mins (or until the top starts to crack a bit)
