Paleo toast for Papa
This sunday is Father´s Day here in Finland. And because our papa – as in my man – does not appreciate too much cakes or other pastry I designed some savory treat for him: Paleo toast with ricotta cheese, pear slices, cinnamon, pecan nuts and honey on top. To be served him in bed, of course.
These darlings were so good. You really need to make them, now. Or at least for tomorrow breakfast. If you happen to value a good and luxurious toast. And who wouldn´t?
Toast makes you happy, especially with abundant toppings like these. There´s something addictive with combination of soft and crispy, warm and cold, sweet and savory. Attraction of the opposites. Attraction of a good toast.
2 ½ cups almond flour
5 tbsp coconut flour
3 tbsp arrow root powder (or for example potato starch)
¼ cups crushed flaxmeal
½ tsp sea salt
1 ½ tsp baking powder
5 organic eggs
¼ cups organic butter or melted coconut oil
1 tbsp organic honey
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
⅔ cups natural full fat Greek / Turkish yogurt (or for example organic almond or soy yogurt)4 x 8 inch or 10 x 20 cm loaf pan
Preheat the oven to 175 Celsius (350 F) degrees and grease the loaf pan. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl with melted fat, honey, apple cider vinegar and yogurt. Mix wet and dry ingredients gently. Do not mix the dough too much so that the bread will not become too dense. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the middle of the oven for about 30-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Let cool and slice the bread.
Toast the bread slices, spoon some ricotta cheese on toasted bread, slice some pear on top and sprinkle with some cinnamon and pecan nuts. Complete with honey. Serve and enjoy!
