Peaches are juicy and tasty and they are also quite good in desserts. You can make a lot of sweet temptations with fresh or canned peaches. Our Healthy Peach Bread is great because you can enjoy it without feeling guilty. It’s always great to have healthy desserts on hand for the family to snack on.
Healthy Peach Bread
This Peach Bread contains a little bit of brown sugar and honey which are much better sweeteners for you than the white sugar as they contain some vitamins and minerals.
The bread is also made with whole grain spelt flour and coconut flour – both healthier alternatives than all-purpose wheat flour. The spelt flour has a distinctive sweet taste and creates baked products with a soft structure. Coconut flour also creates a light texture, hence this Peach Bread is quite tender and fluffy.
Olive oil is among the best vegetable oils in terms of nutrition. Additionally, it can withstand higher oven temperatures: that’s why I don’t recommend substituting other oils in this recipe.
Last but not least, this Healthy Peach Bread contains walnuts which are full of minerals and healthy fats.
Family breakfast or dessert
Healthy Peach Bread is not very sweet making it suitable for breakfast and good also for your kids. It is a great addition to the morning coffee or the afternoon tea. It is certainly one of the best bread recipes you’ll try!
Easy to make Peach Bread
You might be surprised to find out that this bread is quite easy to make. The recipe is pretty straightforward: beat the eggs with sugar and honey, add milk and vanilla, fold in dry ingredients and finally gently fold in chopped peaches and walnuts. After that, you only need to bake the bread in the oven until golden brown. Enjoy warm or cold – it is equally tasty!
