    Almond milk & banana bread (sustainable cooking...)

    Primal Fuel
    Hello, I'd just like to share with you all how I made banana bread out of the left overs of my homemade almond milk. It's not quite 'banana bread' and only tastes amazing if you're into that healthy taste (which I totally am!!!). Will they/won't they like it is irrelevant - I'm just going to share the recipe because it made me so happy (and so full) this morning:

    ALMOND MILK
    1. Soak cup of almonds overnight.
    2. Rinse almonds.
    3. Blend in food processor* until very fine (maybe 1 min).
    4. Add 3 cups water (I use 2 cold water, one hot).
    5. Blend for 5 mins.
    6. Strain into container/bottle.
    7. Blend the wet, ground almonds again with another cup of water (I use warm water) for another 5 mins.
    8. Strain and enjoy!

    pseudo-BANANA BREAD
    1. In the oven, grill the wet, ground almonds until water has evaporated and they are crunchy.
    2. Put in food processor.
    3. Add coconut oil (I used one heaped tablespoon of solid stuff), tahini (I don't measure but perhaps 1/3 jar), dessicated coconut (leftovers amounted to about 4 tablespoons) and about 3 tablespoons of light olive oil.
    4. Blend.
    5. Add one big ripe banana.
    6. Blend. It should blend itself into a little round shape. Remove and mould into a rectangle, decorate with sliced banana and cinnamon and DEVOUR!

    I hope you like it! (Disclaimer= my sister didn't like it, at all, but she's not primal, so that's ok).

    In retrospect, adding cinnamon in step 3 would've been delicious.
    Also, I've placed the banana bread in the fridge, I suspect it'll be even more fun when it's solidified a bit more.

    Feel free to share any suggestions on how to improve this lazy recipe

    That sounds yummy! Gonna try it out once I get to the store for more almonds and coconut oil. by the way - do you use virgin oil or the refined stuff with no scent?

    That sounds an awful lot like work. Here are my recommendations:

    1. Buy unsweetened almond milk. Bask in its yummy deliciousocity as it slowly swan dives down your head hole towards your stomachular area.

    2. Eat a few almonds.

    3. Put on some banana flavoured lip balm.

    4. Slam back a straight up almond milk chaser.

    5. Smile, knowing you don't have to clean the blender before making your Nor Cal Margaritas on the weekend.

    Almond or any other nut butter should work.

    Awesome - thanks for the reply. Sorry, but I have another question...lol

    For those who have made the almond milk above, what did you do with the sludge that's left over after straining the milk?

    Pure genious! You can buy all those things? I hadn't noticed, I've been too busy in the kitchen.
