Morning Glory Bread (GF, DF)


3 large eggs

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

1/4 cup olive oil see note

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons orange zest

1-1/2 cups almond flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1-1/2 cups grated carrot

1/2 cup grated apple about 1/2 an apple

1/3 cup raw walnuts chopped

2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut plus more for garnish


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and oil or spray a loaf pan.

Add the first 11 ingredients (eggs through salt) to a blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients until the batter is well-combined.

Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake on the center rack of the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until bread is golden-brown and firm in the center. Turn off the oven and allow the bread to sit in the hot oven for 5 more minutes. (note: If desired, sprinkle some shredded coconut and sunflower seeds on top of the bread during the last 5 to 10 minutes of baking for garnish.)

Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool 1 hour before cutting. When ready to cut, run a knife along the edge of the bread and turn it out onto a cutting board. Cut thick slices and enjoy!
