and in a separate bowl I mixed eggs , almond milk and melted butter

Then I added the wet into the dry ingredients.

I mixed carefully and spooned the batter into a greased loaf tin.

I baked the loaf for 40 mins.

It was tough waiting for it to cool down. It was well worth the wait, it was delicious. Really hard to believe it doesn’t contain any grains or yeast.

Review of UGG foods Fruit and seed loaf mix

Today has been chilly and very wet, perfect baking weather! What could be more comforting than a fruit loaf with the added benefit of being gluten free and grain free. Also free from dairy and refined sugar.

I found this mix in my local health food shop Food for thought in Guildford . Where they were having a special offer on UGG Food mixes.

The loaf is very easy to make UGG FOODS Fruit and Seed loaf

just beat the eggs together and add the 2 tbsp oil. I used melted coconut oil ( I used lucy bee )

The hardest bit is having to wait 1hr 20 mins for the loaf to bake.

But well worth it! It looks very rustic and topped with low sugar or homemade no refined sugar jam tastes very good. I’ve just devoured three slices.
