Clean Eating - - RECIPE INDEX -

SERVES 8. HANDS-ON TIME: 20 MIN­UTES. TO­TAL TIME: 1 HOUR, 35 MIN­UTES. 1 cup plain unsweet­ened al­mond milk ¼ cup co­conut oil

2/3 cup packed Med­jool dates, pit­ted (about 10 large dates) 1½ cups rolled oats

½ cup green ba­nana flour

(TRY: NuNat­u­rals Or­ganic Green Ba­nana Flour) 2 tbsp chia seeds 1½ tsp ground cin­na­mon

1 tsp each bak­ing pow­der and bak­ing soda ¾ tsp sea salt ½ tsp ground gin­ger 1¾ cups grated car­rots

½ cup finely chopped un­salted wal­nuts

1/3 cup shred­ded unsweet­ened co­conut

1. Pre­heat oven to 325°F. Spray a 9 x 5–inch loaf pan with cook­ing spray. Cre­ate a sling by lining bot­tom of pan cross­wise with parch­ment paper, al­low­ing ex­tra parch­ment to hang over on ei­ther end.

2. In a small saucepan, warm al­mond milk and co­conut oil on low, un­til oil is melted. Turn off heat and mix in dates. Let stand for 15 min­utes to let dates soften. 3. Mean­while, add oats to a blender, blend into a flour and trans­fer to a large bowl. Add ba­nana flour, chia seeds, cin­na­mon, bak­ing pow­der, bak­ing soda, salt and gin­ger. Mix well.

4. Pour soaked dates and warm milk into blender and purée un­til smooth. Pour mix­ture into dry in­gre­di­ents us­ing a spat­ula to scrape out all the purée. Mix to form a thick dough. Fold in car­rots, wal­nuts and co­conut. Trans­fer dough to pre­pared pan. Press dough lightly into pan and use your fin­gers to form into a loaf shape with a smooth top. Bake on cen­ter rack of oven for 1 hour, 5 min­utes to 1 hour, 10 min­utes, or un­til a tooth­pick comes out mostly clean. Let stand for 5 min­utes at room tem­per­a­ture, then lift parch­ment sling to trans­fer loaf from pan onto a bak­ing rack to fully cool be­fore cut­ting. Wrapped tightly, loaf will keep for up to 4 days.
