Turmeric Bread \\ Sweet Laurel
Turmeric Bread, our Savory staple here at Sweet Laurel. This bread is grain free and so versatile! We love piling avocado on top or better yet simply toasting it with jam on top! Turmeric is popular right now, and it is no wonder why. It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties and is a powerhouse in natural medicine. It has been shown to effectively treat side effects of numerous diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and colitis to name a few. This Turmeric Bread was inspired by our favorite local juicer, Renew Juicery. Brooke, the master juicer over at Renew creates beautiful, organic juices and almond mylks using locally sourced ingredients. Our favorite almond mylk is her Turmeric Spice flavor. We were blown away by this concoction, so much so, we created a recipe with it. Here is a version of our original creation! Enjoy!
½ cup plus 1 tablespoon almond flour
1 teaspoon ground turmeric (or 1 tablespoon juiced turmeric)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
1 cups raw cashew butter
2 large eggs + two egg whites
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven 350°F
In a medium bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. In a separate medium sized bowl, mix together cashew butter, eggs and egg whites in a mixer until smooth. Slowly add water to the mixer, followed by dry ingredients, then add apple cider vinegar. Pour into prepared standard sized loaf pan and bake about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out cleanly.
