You all know how much I love breads and pancakes, so I thought, why not combine my favorite bread recipe with my favorite pancake recipe?
I now present to you my newest favorite.... Spinach Bread Loaf. Oh yes.
Spinach Bread Loaf
1 cup apple sauce
2 egg yolks, organic/cage-free (reserve the whites)
4 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp 100% pure maple syrup
1 cup brown rice
1 cup oats
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1 cup spinach, chopped
Heavy dash of cardamom
Heavy dash of turmeric
Pinch of sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
Whip the egg whites until the begin to turn white (but not quite frothy), set aside.
In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the egg yolks, apple sauce, vanilla and maple syrup. Add in the flours, spices and spinach and mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Lastly, add in the baking soda and apple cider vinegar and mix well.
Grease a bread loaf pan (I used grapeseed oil) and bake at 350° 25 minutes, turn down to 300° and bake another 15 minutes with foil over-top.
When the temperature drops enough for me to not feel insane for turning an oven on, I'll be making this again. Yes, even on the coast in Northern Maine, it's HOT. I love it... I really do.
Enjoy (for brekki, lunch, dinner or a snack! :))
