  • GLUTEN AND GRAIN FREE APPLE HAZELNUT SLICE Did you know
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition GLUTEN AND GRAIN FREE APPLE HAZELNUT SLICE Did you know apple season actually starts in January? I was always baffled by this because I felt forever that apples were an autumn or winter fruit, but they start so much earlier than we think. So now that it’s February and apples are dropping fresh from the tree, it’s time for some tribute recipes to the humble fruit. This Apple Hazelnut Slice is one of my favourites of late. It’s scrumptious of course, but also gluten and grain free and my absolute winning element is actually step 2 of the recipe which

  • I wasnt going to post this because Ive never been
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition I wasn’t going to post this because I’ve never been great with a selfie and my ego says “eeeek Jacq don’t do that!” any time I’ve considered it but you know what? - This is actually the STRONGEST AND FITTEST I’ve felt in YEARS! ☺️It’s ridiculous that so often we don’t acknowledge our achievements isn’t it? That our ego will say “do more, be more, more more more!!!!” but you MUST PAUSE and celebrate your goals otherwise what is actually the point?!?!?! I’ve put in a massive effort to create more BALANCE in my exercise in order to feel this

PUMPKIN PRUNE LOAF

How old school hey! And how obvious do you feel when you say you’re eating prunes…ha. So fibrous! Between the prunes and the veggie factor in the pumpkin in this beautiful loaf you’re bound to have one healthy digestive system.

Did you know prunes, just 1/2 cup of them contain about 6.5 grams fibre? Whopper!

To compare it’s about 4x the amount in 1/2 cup of fresh apple.

Now over to the loaf… a super duper one to amp up the veggies in your day, (and fibre…but we’ve established that) and a lovely change from a banana date one if you’re up for it! Can top it with butter, cheese if you wish, some nut butter or tahini, extra fruit like banana if you’d like to make it into more of a meal, or simply bake, slice and pop in freezer for when you want to have a super nutritious snack on hand.

Enjoy!

GF : DF : RSF : NUT FREE

500g pumpkin (once peeled and deseeded comes to 400g / 3 cups grated)

1 cup (200g) pitted prunes

1 ½ cup Rice Flour (can sub for buckwheat flour but it does take a lot of the flavour away)

½ cup shredded coconut 

⅓ cup Honey

1 ¼ cup Olive oil

1 cup pumpkin seeds 

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp bicarb soda

2 tsp cinnamon

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 180C and line a large loaf tin (approx 15x22cm) with greaseproof paper.  

Peel, deseed and grate pumpkin into a large bowl.

Chop prunes in half and add to bowl with olive oil, honey, eggs, vanilla.

Sift the flour, cinnamon, bicarb soda, baking powder, and salt together, then add shredded coconut.

Combine both mixtures and fold in the pumpkin seeds (sparing a small handful)

Pour into a loaf tin and sprinkle with extra pumpkin seeds and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes.
