  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup (Grade A, Dark Color, Robust Taste)
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil (or avocado, melted/cooled coconut oil)
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice (about 2 small/medium oranges)
  • ¼ tsp. almond extract
  • 3 large pasture-raised eggs
  • ¼ cup chopped raw pecans
  • ¼ cup chopped Simply Dried Apricots

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line medium loaf pan (8×4) with parchment paper; set aside.
