Gut Scraper Bread
2c mega flour (recipe below)
1/2 c whole wheat flour (plus a little more depending on the batter consistency.)
1c plain low-fat yogurt, kefir, or low-fat milk
1/2 c oil (I have gotten away with 1/4c) I use coconut oil. Super yummy!
1 egg lightly beaten
1/2 c honey (1/4 c agave)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
2/3 c carrot or vegetable/ fruit purée (if you are light on the bananas add more purée)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or whatever spice blend you prefer)
1 tbsp brown sugar
Mega flour (super nutrient, protein, omega 3, and fiber dense. Yeehaw!)
Grind all these up. I used my magic bullet and the grinding blade. Note: there will be left over flour… store it in the fridge and just use it in pancakes and/or other baking.
2/3 c oatmeal (old-fashioned slow cooking)
2/3 c quinoa
1/3 c lentils (dry)
1/3 c millet (optional)
1/3 c flax seeds
3 TBSP Chia seeds (optional)
Pre-heat oven 350 degrees
Line a loaf pan with parchment and spray with non-stick spray or rub with a little coconut oil.
Mix all the ingredients together. Try not to over work it.
Pour the whole mess into your prepared pan.
Sprinkle brown sugar on top (makes a wonderful sweet crust)
Bake for 50-60 min. Until lightly browned and springs to the touch…don’t over cook. Stick a toothpick in if you are anal and need reassurance. If it comes out clean, you’re golden.
This is a wonderful toddler snack! Amelia will eat this plain for every meal if I let her. With a relatively low glycemic index this won’t spike their sugars too much. (Who wants to deal with a sugar crashed kid at 4pm!)
I love it with a smudge of natural organic creamy PB. I don’t spike my sugars on this because it is high in protein.
I haven’t done a nutritional profile on this recipe but, it is high in minerals, protein, omegas and fiber.
Guy calls this “gut scraper” bread because of its high fiber content and its “cleansing” ( cough) effects.
Eat up and cheers to your colon! Bazinga!
