Fruit And Nut Loaf

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup agave syrup

2 cups chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts)

1 cup of chopped dried fruit (dates and/or figs)

1 cup of chopped dried fruit (cherries, cranberries, apricots)

Yields 1 loaf


Preheat oven to 150C. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf tin and spread parchment paper at the bottom.

In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Set aside.

In another bowl, beat the eggs and stir in vanilla and agave syrup.

Add the chopped dried fruit and nuts into the flour mixture. Stir until nuts and fruit are well coated with flour. Stir in the egg mixture to the flour nut mixture until well combined. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin, pressing the batter down with the back of a spoon. Bake in the preheated oven for about 60 minutes.

Take out the oven and let cool completely. Keep wrapped in silver foil to keep it fresh. It lasts even longer when kept in the fridge.
