  1. Blend all ingredients except for the pecans in a food processor. Add pecans after blending in order to retain the crunchy texture.
  2. Bake at 320 F (160 C) for 10-15 minutes, being careful not to exceed the 15-minute mark. Check on the baked good after 8 minutes, especially if you bake the batter in muffin cups! As soon as a knife comes out clean, remove your treat from the oven.
  3. Enjoy with almond butter on top, or if you're a fan of icing, with some protein frosting. Just be sure to let the bread cool before you add the topping.
  4. Note: You can also use brown rice syrup in place of Stevia or sweetener of choice.
