  • Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all of last weekend sooooooo this hump day feels pretty ready to be a Friday. QUICK TIP for your platter endeavours as the festive season aka most hectic time of year fast approaches... Dips are rad and obvs super easy but they'll look a bit more fun if you pop different ones together in a bowl and spread them about a little, then give them a sprinkle of something. The sprinkles are the best part! Dukkah, sesame seeds, some chopped nuts or herbs, sea salt, ground spices like paprika, coriander, turmeric,

I make lazy ice creams with a blender and make them look fancy with a couple of pieces of banana One of my lovely buddies once said to me these pops and my healthy snickers bar (recipe on the blog) were the two treats that turned him away from being a refined sugar addict for good.

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!

PUMPKIN PRUNE LOAF 

Serves 10-12

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.

Allow to cool in tin for 20 minutes, then remove from tin to cool completely on a wire rack.

Slice and serve or freeze in pieces for up to 2-3 weeks ready for snacks and treats!
