Moist, rich, tender and filled with warming spices and juicy pears. This perfectly spiced pear loaf is 100% plant-based, loaded with flavors and high in fiber. A delicious breakfast, dessert or coffee-break ally. Whole-grain, refined sugar-free and can be easily made GF.
Grease a bread/loaf pan with a little coconut oil.
In a medium bowl, mix the almond milk with the ground flax. Set aside while you prep the rest.
Place walnuts in a food processor (or blender) and process into a coarse flour, some tiny walnut pieces are ok.
Mix all dry ingredients, including the walnuts, in a large bowl.
Add apple cider vinegar, melted coconut oil and coconut nectar to the wet ingredients. Stir well to combine.
Grate 2 pears. Cut the third pear in half; chop one half into small, bite-sized pieces; and thinly slice the remaining half to use as garnish on top of the cake.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and carefully stir everything together. Add the grated pears and the small chopped pieces. Stir gently until combined.
Spoon the batter into a pan and garnish with the remaining pear slices. Bake for about 45 minutes or until you stick a knife and it comes out clean. If it doesn’t, bake for a couple of more minutes.
Allow the cake to cool before slicing.
Enjoy this delightful treat!
* Use GF flour, if needed. It will change the texture a bit, but it should end up just as delicious.**I use coconut nectar for two reasons. One, we don´t have maple syrup down here. A real shame, I know! Two, besides being absolutely delicious, it has a low glycemic index. But feel free to use maple syrup instead.
