The End Is Nigh

Posted on 23 Mar 2011 by maisha (posted in: blogs)

It sounds very serious, but it's actually very exciting: after almost 8 years of studying, the end is nigh! I will defend my Master thesis (The Flash Pyrolysis of Lignin) on 16 May. Instead of enjoying the moment, immediate job hunting stress has kicked in o_O I just don't know how not to stress... thanks dad for passing the stress gene onto me, along with a pair of slight bunions (enlarged big toe joints).

Crazy days call for crazy recipes. Actually, this would have been a great St. Patrick Day's recipe in all it's greenness. Don't be off-put by the color or the ingredients, the taste is rich and exciting.

Chocolate Avocado Banana Bread Recipe (makes 10 slices)
Inspired by this and this recipe.

Ingredients
*DRY*


  • 120 g (1 c) whole grain spelt flour
  • 60 g (1/2 c) whole wheat flour
  • 40 g (a heaping 2 tbsp) Aman Prana coconut flour
  • 24 g (2 tbsp) Sucanat
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • ~50 g 70% dark chocolate, smashed to pieces


*WET*


  • 3 small avocados
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 12 drops of pure Stevia extract (or add more to taste)
  • 4 tbsp of full-fat coconut milk



Method


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients (minus the chocolate chips) together in a bowl.
  2. Process the wet ingredients together in a food processor.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Bake in a greased loaf pan or baking dish until firm and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean (about 50 minutes).



*NOTE* This avocado bread has a slight but distinct avocado taste. If you don't like this, add more sugar and/or some cocoa powder.
