so i'm on the next level of my detox - slightly less strict but none of the good stuff (caffeine, sugar, dried fruit, honey, wheat) - and today i felt desperate for something delicious. Sam had also been scouring the cupboards last night for some sort of muffin or cake or something yummy. so the kids came home from school and i felt like quickly throwing something in the oven for them... and for ME... and for Sam later. so i decided to try to make up a recipe that didnt take me toooo far off my detox. but i really needed a treat! it was so delicious i could eat a whole loaf! Sam & the kids loved it and it kept well and tasted good the next day. it has no sugar and very little wheat. we'll call it apple carrot almond loaf.
preheat the oven to 180C

combine in a big bowl:
1 cup ground almonds
1 cup wholegrain spelt four (or whatever flour you have in the cupboard)
1 tsp bicarb of soda
1 tsp baking powder

stir together in another bowl:
1 egg (gently whisked)
1 apple (grated)
1 carrot (grated)
1/4 cup agave syrup (or honey)
100g butter (melted)

gently mix the wet ingredients in to the dry ingredients and pour the mix in to a small greased loaf tin. sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top of the loaf.

Bake for 30mins.
