Surprise your guests with a delicious dessert bread that won’t break the scale the morning after Thanksgiving. This is a sweet treat that is perfect for holiday breakfast or dessert. Bonus: Get your collagen fix with added ProGlow. Your tummy (and your guests!) will thank you.

 Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coconut flour

  • 1 scoop ProGlow

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup powdered Lakanto sweetener (or organic maple syrup, optional)

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cashew milk

  • 6 eggs room temp

  • 1/4 cup softened coconut oil

  • 3 tsp vanilla extract 

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

  • 1 cup chopped peeled apples 

  • 1/2 cup chopped plums

  • 1 banana or 1/2 cup blueberries for lower glycemic version.

Directions:

  • Blend all ingredients in your food processor with an S blade until smooth. Optional- roll in fresh berries.

  • Bake 50-55 minutes - I prefer it a little under baked.

  • When you take it out of the oven, let it cool in the bread pan. It will become more firm!

  • Store in the fridge or freezer
