Prep + cook time 1½ hours (+ standing) serves 14

Ingredients:

  • 250g trimmed rhubarb, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • ⅔ cup (110g) coconut sugar
  • ¾ cup (60g) desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup (160g) wholemeal plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (280g) plain yoghurt
  • ½ cup (120g) coconut oil, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind
  • 125g raspberries

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease a 12.5cm x 23.5cm (top measurement) loaf pan; line base and sides with baking paper, extending the paper 2cm over edge.
  2. Combine rhubarb, maple syrup, orange juice and ¼ cup of the coconut sugar in a medium bowl.
  3. Place desiccated coconut in a medium bowl. Sift in flour, baking powder and soda; return husks to bowl.
  4. Place eggs, yoghurt, coconut oil, vanilla and orange rind in a jug; whisk to combine. Pour mixture over flour mixture. Add half the rhubarb and one-third of the raspberries; stir well to combine. Spoon mixture into tin and level the top.
  5. Bake for 55 minutes or until a crust has just formed on top. Working quickly, scatter the remaining rhubarb mixture and raspberries over the top; sprinkle with remaining coconut sugar.
  6. Return to the oven; bake for a further 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Stand in the pan for 20 minutes. Using the baking paper as an aid, pull loaf from tin; cool on a wire rack.

Serving Suggestion:

Slice cooled loaf into individual portions and freeze. Then either eat at room temperature or serve loaf warm with nut butter, plain yoghurt or maple syrup. nutritional count per serving: 883kJ (211 cal) 18.5g carbohydrate 3.8g protein 13g total fat.
