blueberry hazelnut loaf

Blueberry Hazelnut Loaf

Serves: 6

O.K, here it goes! I am going to share with you my first (public) recipe disaster! This disaster isn’t in the flavor, texture or ingredient department, it’s in the ‘I’m carrying you across the kitchen’ category!

The other day I was carrying this beautiful loaf bread from the stove over towards the counter when I tripped on the carpet in front of me! I knew immediately that my beautiful loaf was going down! I tried with everyone piece of my to reach for it, but my little arms just weren’t long enough! ;( The pan fell to the floor, the loaf rolled out and split on me! I think I almost started crying! Not only had I been looking forward to making this recipe for a while, but the blueberries I had bought for it from Whole Foods were just perfect, it had smelled amazing while baking AND let’s be honest folks, hazelnut flour is NOT cheap!!! So abiding by the 30 second rule (thank goodness I am a clean freak!) I picked it up and tried to piece it back together so that I could at least take a decent picture, but it just looked worse! So, I took a picture with the best two pieces I had 🙁 So I apologize for the horrible photos! I know we eat with our eyes! I CAN promise you though, that this loaf tastes absolutely AMAZING!!! AMAZING!! (Yes, I salvaged a few of the pieces from the pan and ate them, kind of crumbled!) I HIGHLY recommend trying this! I know I will be making it again soon; I will just make sure to move the rug out of the kitchen before I start! 😉

Directions

Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your loaf pan with non stick spray. In a bowl combine your hazelnut flour, protein powder, baking powder, stevia and cinnamon. In a second bowl beat your eggs. Mix your lemon juice, coconut milk and yogurt into your eggs. Mix your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients. Fold in your blueberries.

It was so delicious!! Out of the 4 slices I could salvage from the disaster above, I gave one to the boyfriend, I ate one plain, I topped one with Coconut Manna (YUM!) and I ate the last one crumbled up (haha) in a parfait with ricotta, more blueberries and coconut! It was good all 3 ways!! It is so versatile!

    Hi Sarah.. Love all your recipes and I have tried so many I found you on Instagram and your have changed the way I eat and it's nice that eating clean isn't dull. I haven't actually made a loaf before I am looking to buy some bakeware and really not sure if your recipes require 1lb or 2lb tins... Aaaaargh HELP!
