Paleo Nut, Seed, Apple and Fig Loaf

Paleo Nut, Seed, Apple and Fig Loaf

There is nothing more comforting, especially at this time of year, than a slice of bread with a thick slathering of chocolate spread. It is the ultimate comfort food. I have worked hard on this recipe over the last few months, perfecting the texture and flavour combination and trialling it out on my trusty guinea pig (hungry husband). Free from grains, gluten, dairy and refined sugar this recipe will fill your body with nourishing goodness and help satisfy any carb craving. Whether for breakfast with eggs, as a side with soup, as toast with jam or even as a tuna and lettuce sandwich, this bread is certain to go down a storm in any household, what ever the occasion!DSC_1132
