This is a delicious Cantaloupe Bread Recipe that I made a little healthier than some of the versions that are out there. Say what? You didn’t know you could make bread out of Cantaloupe? Oh yes you can and it is deelish!
Cantaloupe Bread Recipe
- 3 egg whites
- 1/8 cup coconut or olive oil
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 2 cups cantaloupe – peeled, seeded and pureed
- 3 cups flour (I used white..but you could use 1/2 wheat..will make a denser texture)
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
Preheat oven to 325 and lightly spray a 9×5 loaf pan or small baking dish…such as a 10×8 or a little larger. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla and cantaloupe.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger…I use a sifter…do you?
Then blend all together and pour into loaf pans or small baking dish
Bake in oven for 1 hour for loaf pans OR 30 minutes for small baking dish until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
YUM!! This is delish and tastes a lot like Zucchini Bread BUT has a slight cantaloupe flavor.
Just a little tip…did you know that when you puree these kinds of fruits that you need very little oils to cook with? As a matter of fact, oils can almost completely be eliminated by using pureed fruits such as applesauce, pureed pumpkin and the like.
