Ingredients

Dry ingredients

Wet ingredients

  • 1/2 small/medium (350 g) fresh pineapple (see instructions)
  • 1/4 cup (60 g) canned coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup (110 g) maple syrup (see notes)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Icing

  • 1/3 heaped cup (50 g) powdered Erythritol or use icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  • I recommend measuring the ingredients in grams on a kitchen scale for exact results. Also, you can watch the video in the post for visual instructions.
    Chop 1/2 of a small/medium pineapple (peeled) into chunks, then blend in a high-speed blender until it's purée. You'll need 1 1/2 cups (350 grams) of purée for this recipe. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C) and line a 9-inch (23 cm) loaf pan with parchment paper.
    I used an 8-inch (20 cm) pan, but had some leftover batter, which I used for muffins.
  • Process all dry ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  • Add the wet to the dry ingredients and pulse again until just combined.
  • Pour the mixture into the pan and bake in the oven for about 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick (inserted in the center of the bread) comes out clean.
  • Let cool, then mix the ingredients for the icing in a bowl with a whisk. Drizzle the icing over the bread and enjoy!

Notes

  • Flour: You can use regular flour instead of rice flour if it doesn't need to be gluten-free.
  • Cornstarch: Potato flour should work too.
  • Shredded unsweetened coconut: You can use 75 grams of ground, blanched almonds (almond flour) instead. Any other ground nuts should be fine too.
  • Maple syrup: Any other liquid sweetener is fine.
