Sweet Potato Bites: Never too early for St. Patty's Day!

Posted on February 21 2013

Valentine's Day may have just ended, but it's never too early to get ready for St. Patrick's Day! While St. Patrick's Day may not be the healthiest of all holidays (i.e. green beer), you can still get in the spirit with this gluten-free Irish soda bread. This soda bread is made with gluten-free flour, almond milk and oats so it is low in sugar but high in flavor. You can even make this bread vegan by using an egg substitute instead of egg. The bread tastes great plain but if you want just a little added sweetness, feel free to add some raisins or currants to the mixture. Gluten-free Irish soda bread (makes 1 small loaf) Ingredients: 2 cups gluten-free flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon xanthan gum ½ teaspoon salt ¼ cup gluten-free oats 1 egg 1 cup almond milk Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a baking sheet and dust with gluten-free flour.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and oats. Mix well.
  3. In a smaller bowl combine your egg and almond milk. Pour mixture into dry ingredients and mix until the dough is nice and sticky.
  4. Knead your dough a few times and place on baking sheet. Shape into a round circle.
  5. Place bread in oven and bake 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.
  6. Enjoy your bread with a small pat of butter, some jam or even a little bit of Irish coffee to celebrate.
