delicious grain-free sandwich bread.

20 August 2013

One of my new favorite blogs is Petite Kitchen which features "simple wholefood recipes." I have baked a few miraculous recipes so far & have been nothing less than impressed & incredibly satisfied. This very simple, homey bread recipe is a perfect vehicle for your favorite sandwich fillings or even with a swipe of salted butter & a drizzle of honey alongside a warm mug of tea. You may look at the list of ingredients & think I have missed something, but I assure you I have not. It really is made with nut butter, a banana, & eggs! Ingredients that always seem to be in your pantry or refrigerator, which also makes this staple bread recipe, convenient. Next time I will divide the dough into mini loaves that would be perfect for a picnic lunch. Enjoy!

grain-free sandwich bread.
makes 1 loaf
Recipe from Petite Kitchen

1 cup of organic almond or peanut butter (or sunflower seed butter if you have a nut allergy)
1 ripe banana, sliced in to pieces
2 free range eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

a handful of seeds for decorating (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, & line a loaf tin with parchment paper (if you do not have parchment paper, grease you pan with oil).
  2. In a large bowl, add the nut or seed butter, banana, eggs, baking soda & vinegar. Using a potato masher, mash all ingredients well and mix together until mixture resembles a smooth paste, you can also do this in a food processor.
  3. Spoon the batter into the loaf tin & spread out until even on top. If decorating with seeds, scatter them evenly on top. Pop in to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin before inverting on to a cooling rack.
happy eatings & cheers!
