Cantaloupe Bread

1 c cantaloupe puree (food processsed and then strained by about 1/2)
1/3 c coconut oil – softened or melted
6 eggs
1.5 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
40 drops liquid stevia (NuNaturals)
1/3 c sour cream
1/3 c plain yogurt (not vanilla)
3/4 Tbsp cinnamon (eyeball it)
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp almond extract
3/4 c coconut flour
1/2 c walnuts (optional) – put on the top and push down into the bread before baking.

Food process the cantaloupe, coconut oil and eggs until light and kind of frothy. Add remaining ingrediants, except coconut flour. Process for 30-45 seconds. Add coconut flour and process for an additional minute or so. Batter will be loose, but kind of grainy.

Bake in a well oiled (or parchment lined) bread pan at 350 for 35-40 minutes

Tastes similiar to a pumpkin/banana bread. I’m thinking you could easily sub either of those ingrediants for the cantaloupe and have a successful baking experience.
