Have you ever read the children’s book “If You Give a Moose a Muffin“? This last month I have read it more times than I can count, thanks to my son’s new found love of the book. But it is a cute story, well written and filled with fun pictures so as far as book attachments go I’m okay with him loving this one. Besides, it gave me the inspiration for this bread loaf. The moose loves blackberry jam on his muffins and I thought creating a Blackberry Loaf would be a fun alternative to muffins and jam.
I have been enjoying a slice (or 2 or 3) of this bread daily since baking it. The flavor combinations worked so well and the loaf turned out moist, but well baked; which is something that can be hard to achieve when adding protein powder to the mix. I particularly like slathering on some almond butter and a drizzle of kefir with each slice. (Ugh, salivating just thinking about it!)
This Blackberry Loaf is gluten and dairy free and uses Garden of Life Vanilla Protein Powder for a little extra protein kick. I have not tried substituting eggs for flax eggs, so I’m not sure that this would make for a good Vegan recipe, but if you try be sure to let me know! Another great thing about this bread is that there isn’t any added sugar. The only sweetness comes from the protein powder and the blackberries (which are a bit more tart than sweet).
