My youngest is almost a year old now and he continues to be a bottomless pit. I seriously run out of things to feed him. That being said, he loves my baked goods, especially muffins. However, I wanted to create a recipe that didn’t have any added sweeteners and relied solely on fruit instead. While I started off on a whim and wasn’t exactly sure how it’d turn out, to my delight it came out perfect. It bakes up to have a soft inside and a nice crusty golden outside. Overall, this Paleo fruit sweetened harvest bread bread tastes mildly sweet with cooked banana and apple, with little punches of sweetness thanks to the added raisins. Not only did my baby love the end result, my toddler and parents gobbled it up as well.
