trial #3: the winning loaf

Thank you for all of the tips! What I ended up doing was using Amber's tips with an edited version of Averie's bread recipe. They were to use the vitamix for the wet ingredients + flax and then fold in the rest. Also, take out baking soda and use 1.5 tsp baking powder instead. I also took inspiration from Heather's apple cider vinegar, decreased oat flour, and added more ww flour, Last I decreased the temp to 325 and cooked a little longer - thanks RunBlondie. With all of these changes I was able to obtain the fluffiness that I was looking for. I used the train pan to see how it would turn out. Nick's cake will be the engine.. then there will be a bunch of cars all decorated differently. I'm not sure if I'll make different flavors for the cars or just stick with this. No one will want to come to our parties but at least it will be healthy? ha. What do you think? Should I make regular cake mix for the cars and just make the engine with this nice fruity bread recipe? Thank you for all of the inspiration bloggers!

Sugar Free Banana Apple Bread

1/2 c oat flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 bananas
1 apple
1 1/2 tsp baking POWDER
2 T flax ground
vanilla splash
3/4 c almond milk
1/4 c water
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Put apple cider vinegar and milk in a bowl - let sit. In the vitamix -all wet ingredients -vanilla, apple, banana, then milk after a few minutes, and flaxseeds. Place into a bowl when finished and fold in all dry ingredients. Add water at the end until the consistency is right (1/4 to 1/2 c). In a sprayed loaf pan, place the batter and cook at 325 for 50-55 minutes. 

Yum!

  1. Looks like I am gonna get the courage after all to make my own birthday cake (in April)! Can't wait to hear about the frosting!

    P.S. My browser is lagging majorly on this page... not sure if others are having the same issue.

  2. Congrats on your creation! I would make all the cakes the same. It would save you a lot of time - just make one big batch. Then the kids will all get the same cake - sometimes little ones get upset if they have something different from everyone else;). Can't wait to see the finished masterpiece!

  3. No added sugar or dairy, that's pretty amazing. Thanks for doing the experimenting for us, and bringing everything into one. Can't wait to try it now!

    The train is a good idea. You can offer a variety of options to your guests, but still have it look cohesive.
