Paleo Chocolate Almond Pulp Banana Bread

As i’m sure you know, my new FAVORITE ingredient in all my baked goods is almond pulp! For as long as I continue whipping up my own almond milk, you can count on me for recipes galore #wastefree is the way to go friends!

This treat is just a slightly simplified, easy version of my other banana breads because lets be real nothing beats a slice of some nanner bread am I right?? This one happens to be composed of just a handful of ingredients–bananas, cacao powder, eggs, and almond pulp–and the simplicity makes it THAT much easier on your body.  I know after eating a slice of this, I’ve gotten all my protein, healthy fats, and carbs to make this the perfect snack!

I like to have it after breakfast if I’m still looking for a little something sweet, or to hold me over between lunch and dinner.  This loaf has everything going for it: it’s easy to make, low carb, low glycemic, gluten & dairy free, and packed with the goods necessary for sustainable energy. Should be added to the list of google superfoods if you ask me!

Ingredients

3 bananas

1 1/2 cups almond pulp*

1 egg

1/4 cup cacao powder

Toppings/Add-ins:

2/3 cup dark chocolate chips

*quick tip, after extracting the almond pulp, use your hands to squeeze out any excess liquid, then store in the fridge for 1-2 days in an open glass jar to allow it to dry out!

Directions

In a medium bowl, mash three bananas using a fork. Then, whisk in an egg until just combined.

Add in the cacao powder and almond pulp, and fold.

If adding chocolate chips, fold in 1/3 cup along with any other desired add-ins.

Transfer into a nonstick baking tin (I use 8.5″ x 4.5″) and top with the remaining chocolate chips.

Bake at 350F for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Once cooled completely, slice and store them in the fridge for the week!

Enjoy!
