KITCHEN PRODUCT USED
Preheat oven to 350°F and line an (8″ x 3½”) loaf pan with parchment paper or foil and grease.
Stir together almond milk and lemon juice/vinegar and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
Halve and de-seed avocado. Place in a food processor with milk and pulse for 30 seconds till pureed.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, vanilla and sweetener. Add avocado puree and mix until smooth.
In a medium bowl, combine and uniformly mix flour, protein powder, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
Add dry ingredients to wet, and gently fold until just combined. Do not over-mix or the wheat flour will cause too much gluten to form and make the bread gummy.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 30 minutes, create a tent out of foil, loosely cover the top, and bake another 20-25 minutes. A toothpick inserted into center should come out dry.
Cool for 15 minutes, then lift out of pan. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 45 minutes and cut into slices.
