Tahini Pistachio Banana Bread


I.love.banana.bread. There I said it. But the problem with most paleo banana breads out there include almond flour or almond butter. And almonds make me feel like dog crap. I bloat, I hurt, and it’s not a great environment for the people around me. So I stay away as much as possible. BUT I do great with tahini. Do you know what tahini is at this point? You better. It’s sesame seed paste. Can you imagine how many sesame seeds they have to grind up to make an entire jar of tahini? Mind blowing. Well I personally love tahini so I thought why not start to bake with it?! So that’s what I did. Being an adult is the best. Wait, what?

Anywho, this past weekend was pretty much the best. Here’s what I did –

  1. worked out
  2. ate food
  3. cleaned the house
  4. worked
  5. ate more food including an entire bag of addictive popcorn
  6. watched three movies
  7. worked more
  8. bought a nepresso machine
  9. got drunk off coffee
  10. ate more

I mean, do weekends get any better than that? Probably. Most people like to spend it with others but I prefer the comfort of my own house and pajamas. I think getting nice pajamas was a bad idea because I think I can just wear them all the time. And when I say nice, I mean just pajamas that aren’t my husbands old t-shirts. That look didn’t scream sexy for some reason so I stepped my game up. But back to the point here – nepresso is my new best friend. Their whole be-in-every-hotel-room-and-get-people-hooked marketing strategy is pretty genius because that’s what they did to me. They hooked me in my Montreal hotel room and I couldn’t wait to get one when I got home. And now I’m even more excited to wake up in the morning. I’ve always been that annoying person who woke up at 6am happy as a clam (whatever the hell that means) and now I’m even happier and perkier because I know I get to have my cup of nepresso. I’m fully addicted. It’s a problem.

But I must go for now. I have botox appointment to get to. Nespresso, botox, banana bread…what more do you need?!?

OMG wait! I almost forgot! Did you hear the news?! I’m hosting a trip to France in May! I hosted a trip a couple years ago in Costa Rica and finally signed on to host another!! So here are just a few details –

  1. The trip will be May 12-17 to Burgundy, France.
  2. There are 15 spots available for the trip
  3. The trip will cost $2395 + airfare and that price will include breakfast and dinner every day, transportation and accommodations, and any of the events and excursions we have planned.
  4. What is planned – Exploring Paris, wine tastings, bike tour, river cruise, meals by a French chef, workouts with me and whatever else we get into!
  5. And you can reserve your spot next week on August 30th!

I’ll be sharing ALL the details of the trip on Thursday right here on the blog where you can sign up and reserve your spot. I’m so pumped for this trip because I’ve never been to Europe! And now I get to experience it all with some of you guys! Are you gonna come?!

Prep Time
15 minutes

Cook Time
50-60 minutes

Total Time

8-10 slices


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pistachios on a baking sheet and into the oven to roast for 8 minutes. Set aside. Grease a loaf pan with oil then line the middle with parchment paper. It will make it easier to remove from the pan without it coming apart.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together bananas, maple syrupvanilla extract, eggs, and tahini. Then add coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamom and salt and mix well. Chop pistachios and place ½ into the batter and mix until combined.
  3. Pour batter into bread pan and top with the rest of the pistachios. Then place in the oven to bake for 50- 60 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean from the middle. Let rest for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
