Baby Marrow & Pine Nut #Banting Bread

Hello and Happy Friday!

Got any plans for the weekend? How about some baking?

I’ve seen this recipe for banting bread in The Real Meal Revolution cookbook, and I never even gave it a second look.

You know my philosophy, I would rather go without bread all-together {and I do} than have some below-par substitute…

Well, my friends, I decided to give this one a try and I must say, I was {very} pleasantly surprised! 

It’s more of a nutty loaf than bread, but it’s really flavourful and will happily ‘carry’ any scrummy dip! Wonderful. Just the thing to have around the house over a weekend when everyone seems to be constantly peckish.

Here is my adaptation of this recipe:

You will need:

2 cups of ground flax seeds / linseed {you can easily grind the whole seeds in a grinder or your Kitchenaid blender}

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

half a cup of water

5 tbs melted coconut oil

2 cups of grated baby marrow {I used a coarse grater}

20g pine nuts {lightly roasted in a dry pan}

2 whole eggs

3 egg whites

2 tsp Xylitol

In a stand mixer, mix all the dry ingredients thoroughly, then add the wet ingredients and whisk into a wet batter.

Pour the mixture into 2 greased loaf pans {you could use just one and get a bigger loaf too} and bake for 30 minutes at 180C.

Happy baking! x
