Blueberry Almond Bread

This recipe is an adaptation of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride's grain free bread recipe found in her book, Put Your Heart in Your Mouth. Ali came up with the idea of cooking our bread without raw honey in it, as heat destroys some of the nutrients. We add the honey and cultured butter after the bread is baked!

What you need:
 3 eggs
 2 1/2 cups almond meal
 1 tsp. sea salt
 1 tsp. baking soda
 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
 1/2 cup apple sauce
 zest of 1 lemon
 juice of 1 lemon
 1 tsp. vanilla
 4 oz. blueberries

 Mixing bowl
 9" X 5" glass loaf pan

What you do:
 Preheat oven to 300º
 Melt small amount of butter, ghee or coconut oil in loaf pan
 Beat eggs
 Mix in almond meal, salt and baking soda
 Mix in melted coconut oil
 Mix in apple sauce, lemon zest and juice, vanilla
 Mix in blueberries
 Bake for 50 minutes and check for doneness. May be quite jiggly in middle, but will firm up
 Serve with lots of butter and raw honey or homemade cream cheese/honey spread (recipe coming   soon)
