Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 loaf
  • 250gm cooked & peeled sweet potato
  • 4 eggs (organic pastured if possible) or 4 flax eggs (see method below)
  • ½ cup coconut flour (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • ½ cup golden flax meal or almond meal (if nuts allowed, buy on iHerb or Amazon)
  • ½ cup coconut oil (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup honey (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon (I always use ceylon for better taste and health benefits)
  • ½ tsp bi-carbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (buy on amazon)
  • ½ tsp sea salt (buy on iherb or amazon)
  1. Preheat the oven to 160c degrees (350f)
  2. Grease and line a loaf pan with butter and baking paper so the sides over hang the long side a little
  3. Steam the sweet potato (about 20 minutes depending on how thick the sweet potato is) and allow to cool slightly, peel and place in food processor
  4. Pulse until even mashed
  5. Add all the ingredients EXCEPT raisins into the food processor
  6. Pulse until all ingredients are mixed together evenly
  7. Add raisins and pulse gently, not completely as you want to keep some raisins whole
  8. Spoon into lined loaf pan and even out the surface
  9. Place in middle rack for 50 minutes (you may need another 5-10 minutes depending on the version you have made and your oven)
  10. The raisin bread is ready when an inserted skewer comes out clean (no wet clumpy bits)
  11. Allow to cool in loaf pan for 10 minutes
  12. Gently loosen the short ends of the loaf, then lift the loaf out with the overhanging baking paper
  13. Allow to cool slightly on rack before slicing
  14. Once completely cooled store in air tight container, or slice and freeze
  15. Serve lightly toasted with butter, ghee or just on it's own
  16. Great for school lunch packs too!
