Sorry No Time to Post

Sorry I'm busy having lots of holiday fun and Christmas cheer with family. Don't worry there are still lots of yummy recipes to post and there will be even more and I haven't forgot about the post about the cosmetics/beauty care products! But for now we are just having fun getting ready for Christmas! I am even have my apron on as I type this! We are making this, this and probably some of this today! We have already made lots of these and these and I really should tell you about the Candied Almonds I made last week! But I just don't have time right now! I plan to try the recipe below today and hopefully a couple of other new fun sweet breads! Don't worry if they turn out I will post them all but for now I am going to be brave and give you my healthified Almond Poppy Seed Loaf recipe before I even try it! I thought it might be fun for you to try it right along with me. If it doesn't turn out you can let me know what I should have done different! I just thought it might be fun! I'm pretty sure it will be pretty tasty and at the very least edible! ;) ENJOY! And Merry Christmas!

Oh hey just an update on that almond poppy seed bread I tried. It DID NOT turn out! The flavor was good but I need to work on texture. For some reason in didn't want to cook in the middle. I baked it and baked it and baked it. Then I sliced it and the center was still not done so we sliced it up and baked it again. Biscotti style. It made it edible but not quite what I was hoping for. Not sure why but I will post this same note on the recipe just in case someone else tries it! Just know I warned you. See what I go through to come up with Simple, Healthy, Tasty, recipes for all to enjoy! ;)

Almond Poppy Seed Loaf
with Orange Glaze
3 cups whole wheat flour (I will use hard WHITE wheat)
2 1/2 cups Sucanat
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Egg Replacer for 3 eggs
1 1/2 cups rice or almond milk
1 cup coconut oil melted
2-3 teaspoons poppy seeds
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 - 3 teaspoons almond flavoring (depending on your tastes I think I will like it Almondy;)
1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring

1/4 cup orange juice
(I will probably use fresh and maybe add a little zest not sure yet)
3/4 cup raw sugar (slightly blended so it's less course more like granulated)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
1 drop butter flavoring
For bread blend all ingredients except poppy seeds in a large bowl and beat for 2 minutes. Gently fold in Poppy seeds. Pour batter into 2 large or 5 mini greased loaf pans. Bake large loafs for 1 hour mini loafs 35 minuets or until done at 350 degrees. Let cool for 10 minutes then loosen loaf from pan with a knife and turn onto cooling rack. Place cookie sheet under rack pour glaze over loaves. I may poke them with a fork before I pour the glaze over.
For Glaze combine ingredients and mix well!

Do you like how my "No post" turned into a post? ;)

I am very anxious to hear how the almond poppy seed loaf turns out...I love almondy flavor. So glad you met Pops with treats last night. He munched all the way to Idaho, and liked them so well that he threatened not to bring any home to me. Sure do love you. Mom

Dad only liked the treats because Tammie made them! ;)

I, too, am excited to hear about the almond poppy seed loaf.

And a happy happy Christmas to you and yours!

I hope you are all healthy and well!

Love you loads!
