  • Food Processor
  • loaf pan


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 cup pureed banana (about two bananas)
  • 1 teaspoon liquid stevia (or 2 tablespoons maple syrup)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix the whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
  • Peel two bananas and puree then in the food processor until completely smooth. This will avoid any whole pieces of banana in the bread.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the banana puree, the liquid stevia or maple syrup, the applesauce, the almond butter, and the vanilla.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until smooth and free of any pockets of dried ingredients. Add the dark chocolate chips and stir. If you omit the chocolate chips, you may want to increase the amount of sweetner. Pour the mixture into a greased loafpan.
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes or until a toothpick poked into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  • Makes a great breakfast or a decadent dessert served with coconut whipped cream on top.
