Paleo Blueberry Chai Bread

I will be the first to admit that baking is not one of my strong points. If you guys couldn’t tell already, I HATE measuring. Baking is so stifling because if you put too much of x and not enough of y and completely forgot about z, you’re in BIG trouble–you messed up. In cooking, you have a little more room for creativity, which I love. That being said, I was worried about baking something for you guys. The little container of blueberries in my fridge (the ones that were about to go bad soon) motivated this recipe. Enjoy!

Blueberry Chai Bread (makes one loaf)

Wet
-3 bananas, mashed
-2 eggs
-2 Tbsp. butter or coconut oil
-1 tsp. almond extract
-1 Tbsp. agave nectar
– 1/4 c. Chai tea (I just heated some almond milk, allowed some black tea to steep in the almond milk, and added ginger and cinnamon)

Dry
-1 1/2 c. Almond meal
-1/4 tsp. baking soda
-1/4 tsp. salt
-1 tsp.-1 Tbsp. cinnamon
-1 tsp.-1 Tbsp. ground ginger

-3/4 c. Fresh blueberries
-1/4-1/2 c. Crushed walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a baking sheet with coconut oil or butter.

Mix all of your dry ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, mix all your wet ingredients. Mix dry ingredients into the wet then gently fold in your blueberries. Pour into your baking sheet then top with crushed walnuts. Top with more ground ginger and/or cinnamon if you wish.

Bake for about 35-45 minutes and allow to cool before serving.
