  • RAW CHOC WALNUT BROWNIE  Weve made these raw brownies
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition RAW CHOC WALNUT BROWNIE : We've made these raw brownies so many times now but they never get old - seriously does a good chocolate recipe actually ever get old?!?! Thought today sharing the recipe (just below) with you would be a delicious way to jump over the middle of the week together yes? Oh, we also added wattleseed to this batch and they were insane. Wattleseed is an aussie bush native with quite a nutty kind of coffee flavour and it's yummoo with the choc flavours in this raw treat. RAW CHOC WALNUT BROWNIE GF : DF : RSF

  • ZATAR BAKED EGGPLANT GREENS AND BUTTER BEAN PUREE  Seriously
    16 hours ago by brownpapernutrition ZATAR BAKED EGGPLANT, GREENS AND BUTTER BEAN PUREE : Seriously cannot get over just how delicious this recipe is!!!! All my favourite ingredients and the za'tar flavours with the creamy butter bean puree are next level - butter beans add plant based protein to this dish. Remember protein comes from a variety of sources, and legumes are an incredible source of plant based amino acids - the building blocks for complete proteins. Enjoy folks!

  • One of the beautiful creations made by brownpaperkitchen this week
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition One of the beautiful creations made by  @brownpaperkitchen  this week - all vegetarian, wholefoods, plenty of colour and variety and of course plain ole scrumptious!  @w1llstudio   @h2coco   #eattherainbow 

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!
