Makes 1 loaf
5 tablespoons butter, softened (or 1/3 cup Earth Balance), plus more for greasing pan
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup almond milk
1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup garbanzo beans
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 handfuls chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350 F. Then, lightly grease a bread pan.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and maple syrup. A couple of minutes should do.
- Then add in the vanilla, almond milk, garbanzos, peanut butter, and banana. Mix on high with the flat beater attachment until everything is smooth - 5 to 7 minutes.
- In another bowl, whisk together the wheat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Mix until well moistened.
- Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Pour the mix inside.
- Bake for 30 minutes, then check for done-ness. Then add another 10 minutes to the bake cycle and keep an eye on the bread so it doesn't over-bake.
- Bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
I've made this twice since discovering it. I would suggest that you ONLY make this if you have an electric mixer...or super strong arms, but preferably the former. Additionally, I found I got the best texture with the beans using the flat beater instead of the wire one. I tried both, so trust me on this one. I'd love to hear if any of you make this, please let me know what you think!
