Description

A hearty bread studded with dried fruit, chopped walnuts, and orange zest. The perfect holiday breakfast treat or even dessert!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil*
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup dried plums, chopped (about 8 plums)
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax + 4 tablespoons water**
  • confectioners sugar (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or cooking spray.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flax and water if using. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Cut coconut oil into flour until crumbs are formed.
  6. Mix in remaining ingredients until combined.
  7. On a lightly floured surface, knead down 2-3 times.
  8. With a rolling pin, roll out dough to a 12 by 8 inch oval.
  9. Fold over lengthwise, and transfer to prepared baking sheet.
  10. Bake 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  11. Let cool on a wire cooling rack, and sprinkle with confectioners sugar before serving

Notes

*butter can be used instead.
** 2 large eggs can be used instead.

  • Don’t over knead. Too much can result in a tough bread.
  • Not vegan? You can use butter and eggs instead of the coconut oil and flax.
  • Use any dried fruits and nuts you have on hand.
  • Vanilla extract can be used instead of almond, but I like the extra nutty flavor it brings.
