Create It

 

Pre-heat your oven to 180°c then grease and line your loaf tin (we used a 12cm x 28cm). In a mixing bowl combine the almond flour, eggs, baking powder, vanilla and butter. Next gently fold in the berries, lemon zest and inulin using a spoon. Pour into your prepared tin and bake for about 25 minutes, until your kitchen fills with a delicious aroma and the loaf is golden brown. Devour hot and buttered!

 

Options – keep a few berries back and add to the top of the loaf before popping in the oven. You could also try adding some dark chocolate chunks if your carbs allow or some cinnamon for a hit of autumnal spice! Get creative and make it your own.
