Recipe: Paleo Taro and Goji Berry Bread with the Thermomix

After the success of the Paleo Pumpkin bread I thought I’ll try a little alternative. Originally I wanted to make Taro and Pandan bread however since the local store did not sell pandan I decided to replace this with Goji Berry. The recipe is very similar to the Pumpkin Bread however since Taro is dryer and more tasteless , I added more coconut oil and a little Stevia. I’ve also observed that Taro cooks faster than pumpkin with a total cooking time of 1 hour vs 1.5 hours.

  • Touch time: 15min
  • Cooking time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 460 g (15.8 oz/ 3 cups) Taro cut into pieces small enough to place into TM bowl.
  • 4 whole organic or free-range eggs
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup goji berries
  • 80ml Virgin cold pressed coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon Almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons gluten free baking (or 3/4  teaspoon baking soda + a tablespoon lemon juice)
  • 2.5 cups fine almond meal
  • Stevia (an alternative sweetener) – qty to your liking.

Preparation:

  1. Preheat your oven to 150 – 160 C. Fan forced or 180 C if your oven has no fan.
  2. Place Taro in TM, using scales to measure. Chop at speed 6 for a few seconds. Look for MC whole. I prefer a bit of texture and hence do not want to turn my Taro to a puree.
  3. Add butterfly ensuring it is secure. Add the goji berries, eggs, salt, nutmeg and oil into the bowl. Mix at speed 1.
  4. Add almond meal, baking powder and lemon. Once again mix at speed 1 until mixture looks well combined.
  5. Line a loaf tin with baking paper at the base and the sides.The size I used was: 10 1/2 cm wide and 26 cm long.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin.
  7. Bake for approximately 1  hour – Check after 40min as the time may vary depending on your oven and temperature.

Serve as is or  it is GREAT with avocado. 🙂
