Description

The most moist and delicious Cherry Orange Pistachio Bread, lovely with a cup of tea for breakfast. Naturally sweetened and bursting with tart cherries!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 medium overripe (brown and spotted) bananas
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup avocado or melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups super fine almond flour, packed (really pack it in there!)
  • 1 cup certified GF oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tbsp orange zest (from 2 medium oranges)
  • 1/2 or 3/4 cup Montmorency tart cherries
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan.
  2. Place bananas, orange juice, eggs, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Whisk together almond flour, oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and orange zest in a large mixing bowl. Add wet ingredients and mix until smooth. Fold in cherries and pistachios (I love this silicone spatula).
  4. Pour mixture into loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes, or until a knife comes out almost clean. Cool completely before slicing. Store cooled bread in an air-tight container on the counter for up to 5 days (or store in the refrigerator).
