Ingredients

  • 3 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 egg white at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup Ghee (see notes)
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered Swerve

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 batch of chopped or sliced strawberries (see notes)
  • Juice and zest from 1 lemon (see notes)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together all dry ingredients in a standard sized mixing bowl and set aside.

  5. Stir in 1 cup of chopped strawberries.
  6. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or until your cake tester comes out clean.

Notes

  • People on low-carb or ketogenic diets may want to avoid most fruit, as it can prevent ketosis. A few low-carb exceptions include avocados, tomatoes and some berries. For those not following a low-carb diet, fruits are healthy foods that can definitely be part of a healthy, real-food based diet.
  • You can easily swap out Ghee for melted butter or coconut oil.
  • Strawberries can be swapped for your favorite fruit.
  • Juice & zest from 1 lemon can be added into the batter for a citrus flavor.
  • Base on my personal preference, I did not whip up a glaze for this recipe but you can easily combine (1/2) cup of powdered serve with juice & zest from any of your favorite citrus fruits.
  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Be sure to allow your dairy ingredients to reach room temperature. Room temperature ingredients not only combine more effortlessly (no over-mixing needed) but they also trap air so much better. This trap air will expand and produce a fluffy texture during your baking process.
  • Prepared Pan: There will always be the "next best way to prepare your pan" article. Simply put however, the most effective way i find in my kitchen is a light rub of shortening around the sides, parchment paper on the bottom of the pan (for majority of baking pans), & a very light dusting of flour (cocoa powder for chocolate baked goods) all throughout.
