    Paleo Chocolate Chunk Tahini Banana Bread (vegan)

    Paleo Chocolate Chunk Tahini Banana Bread made with all dairy-free, gluten-free ingredients with no refined sugars!

    It has been awhile since we shared a brand new loaf of BANANA BREAD here on the blog.

    My main b, the original eats here on the blog and by far my most favorite recipe to bake, photograph and EAT.

    I’m extra excited to share this new banana bread recipe with you guys because we are using some new ingredients in this loaf and this recipe is paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free and it is entirely plant-based. Usually paleo and plant-based recipes aren’t the most common, especially when it comes to baking since the consistency can be off, but not in this banana bread!

    This Paleo Chocolate Chunk Tahini Banana Bread is naturally sweetened from banana and maple syrup. The dark chocolate is even refined sugar free (more on that in the recipe!). I use flax egg instead of pasture-raised eggs (but you can sub egg if you prefer) and use almond flour and ground flaxseed for an extra boost of healthy fats and protein.

    But let’s get to my favorite part of the recipe, shall we? I used a new nut milk in this recipe that I haven’t baked with before – Elmhurst®. You may have seen Elmhurst in its classic-looking milk carton in the grocery store back in the day. Well, they’ve been reborn as an exclusively plant-based company and now make a variety of delicious plant milk options ranging from almond, oat, hazelnut, brown rice and even peanut milk! And the best part? The ingredients in their milks are the simplest I have ever seen. I personally love using their unsweetened varieties: almond and hazelnut (which we use today) and the only ingredients are filtered water and nuts. SAY WHAT? Just as clean and simple as if you made it at home! No stabilizers or gums, NADA. Continue Reading

    Chocolate Crumb Banana Bread Bars (vegan)

    We have a new banana bread recipe on the blog friends. But it’s not your usual banana bread recipe…

    For starters it’s not the traditional loaf form and instead made into bars. Making them perfect to snack on all day every day. Plus they are a combination of two of our favorites: crumb cake AND banana bread. Oh and don’t forget the dark chocolate.

    The bottom layer of these bars is a moist (accurate word) banana cake mixed with dark chocolate then on top a slightly sweetened chocolate crumb topping. As soon as I snagged a few bites of the crumbs before they even baked in the oven, I know it was going to be something good.

    These Chocolate Crumb Banana Bread Bars are vegan, gluten-free and nut-free. They are also packed with extra nutrients thanks to Garden of Life flaxseeds, chia seeds and extra virgin coconut oil. I love that all of Garden of Life products are 100% organic and made with quality ingredients. You guys know about my obsession for all of their food, supplements and now their new essential oils. Plus it only seems fitting to share this recipe after having the most magical event with them in Chicago this week!

    It is absolutely amazing to have a brand in the industry who is bringing us products we can trust. I particularly love their Once Daily Prenatal Vitamins and have been taking them since before I was even pregnant. They gave my body extra nutrients when it was trying to become fertile and conceive for the past year + (and the extra hair boost didn’t hurt).  Continue Reading

    Are these not the cutest thing you have ever seen?!

    MINI banana bread loaves are here, finally. After making some of these for a baking class up in Boston, I have been so excited to share these Mini Vegan Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Loaves with you. They are plant-based, nut-free and made with simple and delicious ingredients.

    There are dozens of banana bread recipes on the blog now and this is the first made into mini loaves. You can really take any banana bread recipe and bake it into mini loaves (just the serving size and bake time will vary), but I love the consistency of this recipe! It uses both ripe bananas and plant-based yogurt (I used cashew) to make the loaf moist and the best texture.

    I also used a sunflower seed butter to make this nut-free but you can really use any nut butter you prefer!

    For the flour I used oat flour made from One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats. It is too easy to make oat flour (just add to food processor and pulse until in flour form) and also added some of their Sprouted Rolled Oats as is into the recipe. You can also use their Sprouted Spelt Flour instead One Degree Organics products are an absolute staple in my kitchen. We use their sprouted breads, tortillas, granolas and cereals pretty much daily in one way or another. I love how you can trace every single product back to where it was made and that they offer all sprouted ingredients, which are easier for our digestive systems. Read more about them here!

    Golden Chocolate Chip Banana Bread MUFFINS are here!

    It has been awhile since we made any muffins on the blog and I am currently eating one these with nut butter on top as I am writing this blog post. My new thing is to eat the recipe while I write the post so it is as “in the moment” as possible. Multi-tasking at its best.

    This blog post is filled with two things I am very excited about right now. Number one, these golden milk banana bread muffins. And number two, the new sustainability beauty brand I am about to share with you.

    Let’s start off with the new products because I know you guys are going to love them and you will see why I made these muffins in the first place. Seed Phytonutrients is a new sustainable beauty brand sparking a moment that is committed to promoting natural beauty by using quality ingredients sourced with integrity and sustainable practices. They also have the first shower-friendly paper packaging ever and support organic American farmers throughout the country.

    Seed Phytonutrients has a passion for helping the environment, providing jobs to farmers and producing face, hair and skin products that we can actually feel good about putting on our skin.

    It has been awhile since we have shared a new banana bread recipe on the blog.

    I made so many loafs over the past couple of years between my Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, Vegan Cinnamon Coffee Cake, Dark Chocolate Sweet Potato loaf and so on, that I was really satisfied for a bit.

    Until I was craving a slice of banana bread that had a ton of peanut butter flavor with melted chocolate and didn’t call for any eggs in it. Aka I was out of eggs and didn’t feel like going to the store to get more..

    I didn’t even plan on sharing this recipe as I was making in the kitchen. I had zero expectations for how it would turn out, but the second I took this sweet and banana-y loaf out of the oven, I knew it was going to be a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

    This Vegan Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread pretty much combines all of my favorite foods into one perfectly delicious recipe. We have bananas, chocolate and peanut butter all in one gluten and dairy-free banana bread!

    What I love about this bread is how versatile and EASY it is to make too. I used sprouted oats and oat flour as the flour but you can absolutely sub spelt or gluten-free flour if you choose.

    I use Better Body Foods Coconut Oil and their PBFit Official Powdered Peanut Butter in this recipe too. I love baking with their PBFit as you saw in those Double Layer Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Bars and even in my PB&J Smoothie Bowl! Better Body Foods makes a variety of staples that you will love to have on hand in your kitchen. Their coconut flour, chia seeds and superfood blends are also some of my favorites. They make the most healthy and tasty ingredients that you can use for so many recipes! Continue Reading

    30-minute Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls (gluten-free)

    30-minute Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls that are gluten-free and easy to make!30-minute Healthy Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls that are gluten-free and easy to make!

    We are getting a 2 for 1 today friends. Cinnamon rolls meets banana bread meets perfection.

    These gluten-free Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls are SO GOOD! They are made with just a few ingredients (including my partner for this post, Brummel & Brown), and they don’t require a lot of prep work. Not to mention they don’t even have any yeast in them! I have nothing against adding yeast to cinnamon rolls but to be honest, I never have any in the house and always seem to forget in the store.

    These are definitely quite the messy recipe though so I recommend waiting until your kitchen isn’t spotless to bake them. I got flour all over the counter, floor and my finger prints were all over the place trying to get all the ingredients and utensils out (sorry Jord ha!).

    I use gluten-free baking flour for these and the inside is filled with this delicious banana bread-like filling. Mashed banana, chocolate chips, cinnamon and organic buttery spread. I use Brummel & Brown buttery yogurt spread. It is made with real organic yogurt, plant-based oils and purified water. It doesn’t have any artificial flavors or preservatives, and no artificial growth hormones used on the cows they get the yogurt from!

    Brummel & Brown makes a variety of creamy buttery yogurt spreads that are a great alternative to butter. You can bake with it, cook with it or smear it on top of some toast! It was the perfect butter/oil sub for these Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls. Brummel & Brown Organic can be replaced 1:1 for butter in most recipes.

    I also smeared some homemade coconut cream “icing” on top of the cinnamon rolls once they were out of the oven! Traditionally this is made with powdered sugar but instead I used coconut butter, coconut oil and some nut milk to create a low sugar alternative.

    These Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls are ready from start to finish in 30 minutes and they are wholesome enough where you can eat some for breakfast and feel good about it. I wish I had these back in high school when I used to get cinnamon buns at Starbucks and Panera (yes, that happened!).
