Like that? I tried to get creative with the name, nana = banana, punkin = pumpkin.
As I dabble more in baking in the Paleo realm, I’m learning which ingredients to adjust at different times, etc. It’s fun, but trust me, things don’t always turn out well!
Nana Punkin Chocolate Chunk Bread
- 4 bananas
- 4 eggs
- 5 TBSP Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Dash sea salt
- Enjoy Life Mega Chunks
Mix bananas, eggs, melted coconut oil and pumpkin until well incorporated (I used my KitchenAid Mixer). Add coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, dash of salt, and mix. Toss mega chunks in (however many you prefer), and lightly stir. Pour into loaf pan oiled with coconut oil, and bake for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
Things I’ll change next time I make it (and I WILL make it again): I will use 1 less egg, and a 1/4 cup more coconut flour. Also, adding chocolate is rare for me, but if I’m going to, it’s going to be Enjoy Life.
This recipe was adapted from the Civilized Caveman’s Paleo Banana Bread. In the interest of Auto-Immune Protocol, I eliminated the nut-butter and replaced it with the pumpkin and an extra TBSP coconut oil. I also removed the baking powder as I haven’t found one I like that doesn’t contain corn. The only thing I measured was the baking soda.
P.S. Last night, I prevented a low blood sugar with a slice of this warmed up and a drizzle of raw honey 🙂
This looks VERY YUMMY, I’m impressed with your skills as a cook/baker.
Super yummy! I had two slices this morning with breakfast after my workout, warmed up with a little drizzle of honey 🙂
Delicious!!! Made some yesterday and it went over very well around here – it’s amazing that there’s even a slice left, but I’m determined to save a piece for John. The boys wanted me to make a double batch today, but I only have 3 bananas, so one more loaf will have to do…
I’m so glad! I think next time I might try making mini-muffins or muffins…but there is something about a slice of warm bread like this.
