There's something homely and comforting about a fresh, warm apple and rhubarb loaf. But have you ever tried it with acai!?
This recipe by Healthy Luxe is a delightful twist on the classic loaf, using Amazonia's Acai Pure. With 7 x the antioxidants of blueberries plus Omega-3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, Acai Pure isn't just reserved for smoothies and bowls!
Healthy Luxe has created a simple rhubarb compote to be included in this loaf. It's sweetened only with fresh apples, compared to the majority of store-bought compotes that usually contain significant quantities of sugar.
The compote is also a great addition to granola, yoghurt, oats or on its own. If you give this recipe a go, remember to tag us (@amazoniaco) on Instagram – we love seeing your creations!

2 cups almond meal

Apple Rhubarb Compote
To make the compote
Peel the apples and thinly slice, removing the core. Rinse and chop the stalks off the rhubarb.
Combine in a saucepan with filtered water and leave to simmer for approx. 20 minutes, checking occasionally and adding more water if required. Take off heat and leave to cool.
To make the loaf
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine 'wet' ingredients, whisk to combine.
Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and gradually stir through wet ingredients until well combined.
Place mixture in a greased and lined loaf tin (24cm x 13cm).
Transfer to oven and bake for 30 - 35 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before removing from loaf tin.
Serve with choice of toppings such as nut butter, honey, chia jam or coconut yogurt.
