Happy Friday luvs!!!

Continuing our excitement of new recipes that we are just loving… today it’s all about bread. Yes bread!

Now our still favorite go-to quick bread is our 2 ingredient plantain bread. But this one is pretty darn close ;) As it has really only 5 main ingredients!!!

A super easy chocolate pistachio nut butter bread recipe, perfect for hitting those chocolate and bread cravings all in one.

We’ve seen other nut butter based bread recipes before and we just had to give it a try. Of course with our own purely twins twist. Again keeping the ingredients simple to just 5 main ingredients to the bread. As we aren’t counting baking soda, baking powder, vanilla or apple cider vinegar. 

Now just like our cookie dough cinnamon rolls not much wording is needed, as this bread doesn’t really need much of an introduction either. Especially since it’s infused with the lovely flavors of chocolate and pistachios in the form of bread!

    My is in the oven as I type this. One thing you forgot to add coconut flour on direction #7. It starting to smell good. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

      not sure Megan as it can be hard to replace 4 eggs, you can try 2 flax gels and 1/2 cup of yogurt or something. might have to add more leavening too. we’ve not experimented with egg-free version of this yet, so not really sure what will work. sorry.

      I made this without eggs last night.. I used 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt and 2 chia ‘eggs’ plus I increased the b. soda & b. powder to 3/4 tsp. The bread didn’t rise like theirs did but it is still absolutely delicious!
