Healthier mango macadamia loaf 

What can I say about this delish mango macadamia loaf, other than you should make it as soon as you can! Mango is my absolute fave Summer fruit, and I think the season is too short!

You’ll find that most of my recipes that involve fruit use bananas, strawberries and mangos. I do actually love most fruit, but these three are on the highest rotation in our house!

And in case you’re wondering – no, I don’t worry about the sugar content – because it’s fruit. Fruit also has other nutrients, and you need to consider the big picture. Like the other foods that you’re eating with that meal. All of the meals you’re eating during the day, and even throughout the week. 

Because looking at the big picture is how you eat a balanced diet, not by labelling a single food or a single ingredient as good or bad.

So, getting back to the mango macadamia loaf, I suggest you make this with fresh mango while you can. My top tip for enjoying mangos as long as you can is to buy up at the end of Summer, and freeze them. Just roughly chop them and portion them into freezer bags. 

Buy in bulk from your local farmers markets or wherever there are specials on, and you’ll have mangos on hand well into Autumn.

Here’s the recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe mangos
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ¼ cup flax seed
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • cup macadamia oil
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp bicarb soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180℃ and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  • Cut the cheeks from the mangos and scoop out the flesh. Dice half and set aside.
  • Puree the mango flesh until smooth. Add the oil, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla. Blend until well mixed.

  • Add the mango mixture and gently fold through.
  • Pour into the loaf tin and top with reserved macadamias and mango and extra coconut if desired.
  • Bake for approximately 50 minutes. Check at half way and cover with foil if the top is browning too quickly.

Recipe notes

Use coconut oil instead of macadamia oil if you prefer.
 
You could also substitute different sweeteners, like raw honey or rice malt syrup

I also enjoy making muffins from this recipe and I swap the macadamia nuts for walnuts.
