I found out my 7 yo has been trading his food for treats at school. I couldn’t work out why his behaviour seemed off and his skin looked terrible so I asked his friends and could not believe he has been trading his crispy home made bacon for treats! I know the bacon is good (check out the recipehere) and he always asked for extra to ‘share’. I didn’t know whether to be angry or pleased, I was a little bit of both. It made me realise I should make a few more clean treats so he didn’t feel like he was missing out. That’s where this grain free, nut free and dairy free Raisin bread comes in.
Raisin Bread (Dairy Free, Nut Free and Grain Free) – Great for school snack packs
I’m really pleased with how this raisin bread turned out. It’s more cake-y than bread-y but being grain free, nut free and tasting this good, it’s definitely a success when all three kids devour it. I based this recipe off my banana bread recipe (see here) except this contains sweet potato instead of bananas. You could easily slice and freeze this raisin bread and lightly toast it for breakfast in the mornings or store it in a container in the fridge for 3-4 days. This loaf lasts us only 2 days so I just leave it out on the counter.
great for breakfast, lightly toasted and slathered with real butter or ghee if you can have it
