Double Chocolate Loaf
I spent a week in Florida this summer.  It was fantastic.  I lived like a retired Floridian.  Yoga in the morning, home cooked meals, beach time, lots of reading, lots of sleep.  So good!  We splurged on all the healthy ingredients I would usually have in my kitchen at home.  We spent a good amount of money at whole foods and it kept us for the week and then some.  At the end of the week, I was left with a whole bunch of ingredients that I needed to use up so that they wouldn’t go to waste.  I decided I could use the ingredients to create my new favourite snack: the double chocolate loaf!

Here is how I put it all together:

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup raw protein (chocolate)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • Wet Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

Mix the dry, mix the wet, pour dry into wet slowly, bake at 350 for about 30 minutes in a loaf dish lined with butter or coconut oil.  Once it’s done, take it out of the loaf dish and let it cool on a rack for about 10 minutes before you dig in.
