This is a special occasion loaf--sweet and fragrant, just right with a steaming cup of green, black or red tea. It doesn't rise as high as a loaf made with wheat flour and it can be a bit crumbly, but it still tastes delicious. If you like, you can substitute some thinned-down Greek yogurt for the milk. If you're using a liquid sweetener in place of the sugar, omit the milk.

Best Used By Blood Types:

  • Baked Good

  • 3/4 cup compliant milk
  • 2 Tbsp. dried lavender flowers, finely chopped, OR
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh chopped flowers
  • 2 cups compliant flour
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 1 1/2 tsp. corn-free baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 6 Tbsp. butter, softened OR ghee
  • 1 cup raw cane sugar OR liquid compliant sweetener
  • 2 large organic free-range eggs

How to make it:
  1. Grease a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 325F.
  3. Heat milk OR liquid sweetener with lavender almost to a boil, then steep until cool.
  4. Mix flour, flaxseed, baking powder and salt together in bowl.
  5. In another bowl cream butter and gradually add sugar, then eggs, one at a time, beating until light and fluffy. Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture alternately with the milk and lavender until just blended. Pour into the prepared pan.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a wooden pick inserted into the crown of the loaf comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
