Orange, Vanilla & Raspberry Paleo Loaf

July 23 2015

If you are looking for a sweet, protein-packed treat with no nasties, then this is the loaf for you. This delicious orange, vanilla, and raspberry loaf is easy to prepare, great for work or school lunches, and is the perfect healthy snack for when that 3pm snack attack hits!

This recipe requires a food processor, but if you don’t have a food processor you could alternatively mash the dates into the coconut milk with a fork. It will be a little chunkier but still work fine. I also like to make my own almond meal using a food processor. I find it gives the slice a little more interest and a lovely texture. Unfortunately, this time around if you don’t have a food processor, mashing the almonds with a fork may not work too well. ☺

Enjoy the recipe!
