Savory Bean Bread 2

Savory Bean Bread

Serves: 12

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week! I am always excited for Friday’s, but this week I am extra excited! Tonight I am taking an inversion class at my yoga studio. One and a half hours of handstands, headstands and forearm balances! I can not wait! The boyfriend thinks I’m crazy, especially when I bust out a forearm balance in the middle of our workout at the gym! haha I will report back on Monday and let you know how it goes! Let’s hope I don’t damage anything! ? Also, the Knicks and Celtics are playing one another in the NBA playoffs this weekend! The boyfriend is a Knicks season ticket holder and I am a Celtics fan (represent Boston), so I am hoping he takes me along to one of the next few games…..fingers crossed! If not, you can bet I will be watching on TV and routing for the Celtics! :)

Sunday is also the 21st, which means it’s Recipe Redux day!!! I have one amazingly delicious coming your way too!

We have been on quite the sweet recipe trend lately, haven’t we?! The ride has been delicious, but my taste buds need a switch! After eating almost all sampling those sweet treats (for your benefit of course), I couldn’t deny my cravings for something more savory! Too much of one thing usually sends me running in the opposite direction! haha This time that direction was towards this amazing bread! After eating this, I don’t think I will ever buy another savory loaf of bread again because the flavors in this ROCKS!! Plus it is packed with protein and fiber without using any protein powder!! (because let’s be honest, we all know I needed a break from that too!) haha This may even qualify as a #strangebutgood recipe, no? ?

For all my sweet lovers out there…have no fear! I still have oodles of sweet, delicious recipes just waiting to be posted for you! ? But until then, I hope you enjoy this! :)

If you like savory, then this will blow your doors off!! I was skeptical at first, but this turned out a 1000x’s better than expected! I topped mine with some fresh mashed avocado for snack one day….to die for! It was moist, light, fluffy and just like a specialty loaf from Whole Foods! Mmmm……. ?

Isn’t the color amazing! The avocado pairs so well!!
