chocolate pistachio nut butter protein bread

by purelytwins

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.

Chocolate pistachio nut butter protein bread recipe that is gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free and delicious!

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!

This recipe is basically jumping off this screen and saying “You’ve gotta give me a try. Like bake me now! Please I’m delicious!”

Time for us to brag a little. If you don’t mind. We are bursting with excitement with how well this recipe turned out. We’ve been unsuccessful at wiping the huge smiles off our faces.  Okay bragging over.

This looks amazing. Any substitutes for egg? I’m allergic to egg whites. :/. Thanks.

purelytwins January 11, 2014 - 8:53 am

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.

Lindsey January 22, 2014 - 7:25 pm

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!
