Carrot & Ginger Loaf

INGREDIENTS

(Makes 1 small loaf)
• 1-6 organic eggs
• 1/4 cup coconut sugar
• 1 tsp sea salt
• 1 tsp organic baking powder
• 1/2 cup organic coconut flour, sifted
• 1/4 cup/65 ml organic coconut oil, melted
• 1/2 cup/85 ml coconut milk
• 2 medium organic carrots, grated
• 2 thumb-sized pieces of fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated.

METHOD

1. Pre-heat your oven to 170 degrees celsius (325 degrees Fahrenheit or gas mark 4).

2. Whisk the duck eggs, melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, ginger, carrot and salt into a bowl.

3. Sift the coconut flour and baking powder into a separate large bowl.

4. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and whisk thoroughly, using a hand held blender to create a thick batter – there should be no lumps.

5. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper and pour the mixture in.

6. Bake for 45 minutes. The bread is ready when a skewer comes out clean and the top of the bread has browned.

7. Turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
