1 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 1/4 Cups Almond Flour
2 Cups Light Brown Sugar
Prepping the Fruit Pulp:
Using a food processor to further chop the fruit pulp from your juicer to breakup any large pieces; resulting in finely copped semi-wet pulp.
If you're not ready to make the semi-sweet bread at this time, simply freeze it until ready.
Pre-soak the dates in the nut milk of your choice up to an hour at room temperature until softened. (If you don't have time to wait an hour, slowly heat the dates and nut milk on low heat mashing frequently to soften the dates.)
Pre-heat the oven at 350 degrees
Using a food processor, puree the date/milk mixture until liquid adding in the light brown sugar.
Spray olive oil on the sides and bottom of your loaf pan including non-stick pans.
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl: pecans, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and almond flour
In a separate mixing bowl whisk all liquid ingredients together: date/nut milk mixture, vanilla extract, olive oil, and apple sauce
Combined the liquid mixture with the dry ingredients and fold in the fruit pulp. (Do not manipulate too much.)
Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for about 1.5 to 2 hours or until it past the toothpick test by inserting a toothpick in the center and remains dry.
Remove the bread from the pan by flipping it upside down on a wire rack and serve warm. For a little more sweetness garnish with Crofter's Seedless Blackberry jam.
