Healthy Irish soda bread!

With all the Green theme for the St Patty’s day going on I finally decided to make this healthy Irish soda bread. Since my husband is strictly against white flour I incorporated whole-wheat flour and almond flour into the recipe. The almond flour gave it a great texture and made it amazingly chewy. In fact I was enjoying my pre baked bread batter and was so sure that the final product would be great.

Happy St. Patty’s Day!!

¾ cup whole-wheat flour
¾ cup almond flour
¾ cup low fat buttermilk
½ cup raisins
1 tsp caraway seeds
1 tsp orange zest
¼ cup splenda
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 350

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and sift them through a sieve.

Add the raisins, caraway seeds, orange zest and Mix.

Add the buttermilk and the butter. The dough will be sticky and wet.

On a cookie sheet sprayed with non stick cooking spray, place this mixture and let it bake for about 30- 40 minutes, until a knife pierced in the center comes out clear.

Eat with butter on top….YUMM…
