I’ve never been super interested in making sandwich bread. I don’t care for sandwiches anymore, and any other loaf of bread I’ve made was more of a dessert (like our banana bread, or our zucchini bread from Gather.) The only bread I’ve ever been interested in making was french bread (which ended up as crostini in Gather), and that was because Gather is an entertaining book, and who doesn’t love crostini for entertai…
…to the holiday season at Sara’s house for her mom’s amazing desserts, especially her chocolate chip banana bread. I’m not sure of the exact ingredients in Barbara’s banana bread, besides the obvious bananas and chocolate chips, but I did my best to recreate this delicious recipe. For our banana bread recipe, our main source of sweetness came from the ripe bananas, and also a date mixture with a touch of maple syrup. Addin…
Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread with Pecan Streusel
This is a banana bread masterpiece. It has the taste and texture of a decadent, fudgy, moist chocolate swirl banana bread with a crunchy caramelized pecan streusel, but is very low in sugar and only calls for whole, unprocessed ingredients like raw honey, cacao, bananas and almonds. Enjoy a slice with a piping hot cup of afternoon tea or after a good workout.

Sweet Potato Skillet Bread with Cinnamon Pecans and Honey
Some foods are cozy and comfortable whether you grew up with them or not. Avgolemono soup, cashews, and winter squash make my short list of "new" comfort foods. A few things immediately come to mind when I think of what comfort food used to mean to me: microwaved zucchini with garlic salt, creamy chicken over rice, dad's fried rice, and marshmallows. Not much overlap, is there? Zucchini is still one of my favorite vegetables, but I can't remember the last time I microwaved it, or had creamy chicken over rice.
Some days you just want your food to make you feel cozy from the inside out. This bread does exactly that. It sends cinnamon aromas through the kitchen, swirled with scents of nutty toasted pecan and sweet bread. You start to feel cozy even before it's out of the oven.
Still warm, butter and honey melt over slices of this bread with ease. That's the real secret: melty butter and sticky honey.
It doesn't matter if this is the first time you've had a bread made of sweet potatoes. There's something about this home-style bread that wraps you up in a blanket and takes you home. This rustic skillet bread will be on your list of "new comforts" soon. Very soon. How could a single slice that marries cinnamon-roll smells and pecan-pie flavors not make your list?
Paleo bread made from sweet potatoes and almond flour! Topping with cinnamon pecans.
My one regret: cooked in a 10-inch cast iron skillet, this bread comes out thin, like a flat bread. This is great for optimizing the pecan-topping to bread ratio, but I found myself wishing the bread was a tad thicker. I foresee some kitchen experiments in my future.
