This Apple and Buckwheat Loaf is delicious – perfect for young children and adults alike. It’s low salicylate so it’s also perfect for people with eczema and related food allergies.  If you really need to stick to zero salycilates though, then I recommend using pear instead of Red Delicious apples. According to The Eczema Diet, Red Delicious apples have the lowest salicylate level, of all common apple varieties).

This loaf is packed with healthy goodness: plenty of apple, which contributes moistness, fibre and sweetness, eggs, which are full of protein, buckwheat and tapioca flour. I used tapioca flour to weaken the stronger buckwheat flavour, however, this recipe would still work well using 100% buckwheat flour.

It’s another one-bowl-wonder, which makes life so much easier. Just mix it all up in one bowl and it’s ready to pour into the loaf tin for baking. Cooking takes about an hour, so while it’s a simple recipe, just remember to allow time for cooking.

I enjoy this loaf simply on it’s own, sliced and toasted in a toaster, a sandwich press or a frying pan also works well.

This loaf also makes good finger food for babies (8 months +) too.
