Summer is here! And with that comes fresh berries – and nothing gets me more excited than fresh berries in my fridge! But sometimes I buy too many, and then run out of ways to use them.
In case you’re in the same situation, wondering what to do with all of those beautiful fresh strawberries you bought at the store – look no further! CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRY BREAD is the perfect way to use them, and to satisfy that sweet tooth!
This bread is gluten free, packed with delicious ingredients and is paired with a frosting that is a little off the beaten path, but truly delicious and add so much sweet flavor to this rich chocolate loaf!
I decided to include a sweet strawberry filling baked into the bread to give that extra pop of freshness. the filling is made up of just 3 simple ingredients – strawberries, xanthan gum and sugar. and in case you don’t have xanthan gum, don’t stress, just add a touch of cornstarch in its place! Also, the filling is completely optional, but definitely HIGHLY recommended to make the bread SO moist and super fresh and sweet!
I used almond flour for this bread, but I believe oat flour will work well as substitute, just in case you don’t have almond on hand. As far as the frosting goes, you can make it 100% vegan by substituting normal butter for a vegan alternative. I haven’t tested any substitutes, however, these are just recommendations just in case you don’t have some of the ingredients in the list below available to you.
That being said, I did link some of my go to baking products in the ingredients list, and you can also shop them via my Amazon shop page using THIS link!
