[from Nutrition Stripped]

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup homemade walnut butter (1½ cups chopped walnuts made into a butter or use store bought)
  • 4 whole eggs, beaten
  • ⅓ cup almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons whole flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoon dried herbs such as thyme, rosemary, oregano (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven for 350F degrees. Using your Vitamix or food processor make the walnut butter by pouring walnuts into the machine and blending until smooth- can take up to 8 minutes, scrape the sides every minute.
  2. Using a wooden spoon, mix the walnut butter, maple syrup, and 4 eggs in a large bowl until smooth. Next add almond flour, baking soda, optional dried herbs, and flaxseed until combined.
  3. Using coconut oil, grease a 5 x 9 inch bread loaf pan (silicon preferred).
  4. Spread the dough evenly into the bread loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes until a tester comes out clean.
  5. Take out of the oven once cooked and let cool for at least 1 hour before removing from the pan, further cool before slicing.
  6. Store: in the fridge for up to 1-2 weeks, or slice and individually wrap slices in foil and store in the freezer for a month.
