Savory Bean Bread 4

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! πŸ˜‰ 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! πŸ™‚

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 allΒ  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? πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ˜‰ But until then, I hope you enjoy this! πŸ™‚

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……. πŸ˜‰

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

    I NEVER would have thought to put those ingredients together but it looks to die for. Definitely on the menu tomorrow. I THINK I have at least 1/2 a cup of coconut flour left and this is recipe is worth it. Never used nutritional yeast but have been curious to try and I think my a nearby grocery store sells it in bulk so I can pick up a little to try. OH GIRL I LOVE going to basketball games!!! SO FUN!! I had a friend who used to get Warriors season tickets and I got first dibs on which games to go to with him. Of course one of the first games I requested was against the Celtics. Playoff games are so exciting!!!!!!!!!! I love the atmosphere. I have been to baseball games too but it's just not the same. I am definitely a basketball girl. I HOPE you get to go!!! Have a beautiful weekend!!!!!! ;0).

  • I LOVE THE STATS although I am not a bean person - I know! I wish I was cause they are so healthy! Maybe I can add protein powder to it! :) Do you taste the beans??? ;) I don't even know what nutritional yeast is! ;) Non fat yogurt? So cool on that class!!! Can't wait to hear more!!!!! I was born in Boston so you can guess who I want to win - I am on your side!!!

  • Interesting. Avocado would be amazing on this! Hmm...I wonder what else would be good with it? Soup? An open faced grilled chicken sandwich?

  • Oh man, this makes me wish beans & me were on good terms. Bean bread slathered in avo?? Sounds like heaven! And I love my sweets, but I definitely get burnt out on them quickly. Been enjoying simple dark chocolate as of late, though.
    April 19, 2013
  • heavens yes, love this! think any bean will work?
    April 19, 2013
  • Do you know what I can sub the nutritional yeast for??
    April 19, 2013
  • Mmmmmmmm BABYYYY I am suuuuuch a savoury girl it's not even funny!!!!!!!!!! I love that you slathered it with avocado later! HOW YUMMY! I can't wait to try this out! Definitely on the top of my list!

    I made this today - and it's definitely a keeper. I absolutely loved it, but my husband didn't much care for it. I love the stats too. Thanks for this great recipe!
