Fig Pecan Bread (Grain and Dairy Free)

I love fruit bread. I find it a perfect treat after dinner or as a nice addition to any breakfast. I also love figs..a lot! Figs are rich in calcium, fiber and potassium. Pecans contain B Vitamins and antioxidants from Vitamin E. And then there is coconut flour. This amazing flour is bursting with protein and fiber.

1 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
3/4 cup figs, chopped and stems removed
3 eggs
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup pecans
1/3 cup honey
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a bread pan.

Place all ingredients except pecans into a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer for 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the pecans and mix for another 3-5 minutes. Pour batter into bread pan.  Bake for 40 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes before slicing the bread.

You could also use walnuts in place of pecans if you prefer. If you can’t find figs locally, I like to use these figs.

  2. I love figs and the bread look yumm!

  3. This looks wonderful! I love how healthy it is. Heading to Whole Foods today, so I will most definitely pick up some coconut and tapioca flour and make this. Do you think I could sub dry figs or should I use fresh?

  4. I love figs too!! Even as a girl, I loved fig newtons…now I need to recreate a fig newton bar!! I love to idea of putting the figs into the bread…I will have to use that!

  5. If you can find fresh figs, I would go for that. If not do the dry figs, but I might use a lighter flour then. I would maybe try brown rice flour over tapioca flour.

    Oh please make GF fig newtons Tessa-I bet they would be amazing!

  6. Happy New Year! Wishing you lots of love and happiness in 2012!

    (Love the look of that bread!)
