After a fabulous weekend at the beach with my family, I returned back to Manhattan last night with the yearning to bake…don’t ask me why because it was about 100 degrees outside and my tiny apartment was a hot box even with the air conditioner blastingBut that didn’t stop me from baking an incredibly moist and flavorful loaf…I picked up a dozen of eggs from the market and got to work in my kitchen…a little bit of this (cherries) and a little bit of that (cashew butter) and a little imagination (sunflower seeds and pine nuts) created a divine loaf, which I enjoyed for my Sunday evening dessert…toasted and topped with fresh marmalade.

This loaf is delicious as a breakfast nibble spread with nut butter, an afternoon snack crumbled atop of Greek yogurt or enjoyed simply sliced (and eaten while slicing, hehe)…

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Eggland’s Best eggs (my favorite)
  • 1 cup cashew butter

  • 1/4 cup dates, finely chopped

  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. orange zest
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, for topping

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prepare a loaf pan; coat with non-stick baking spray.
  • Combine cashew butter, oil and eggs in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed; blend until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, combine arrowroot powder, sea salt, pepper and baking soda.
  • Combine arrowroot blend with cashew butter blend; mix well.
  • Slowly add in cherries, dates, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and orange zest; gently fold to combine.
