Green Tea Walnut Loaf

Categories > Breakfast, Holiday, Vegetarian

Did you know you could bake with green tea? It’s yet another way to get more of the super beverage into your diet.

Here, the antioxidant-packed steeped leaves are one ingredient in a loaf that’s a great alternative to zucchini or banana bread.

Enjoy a slice (topped with a hunk of nut butter for protein) with your morning or afternoon cup of (green) tea.
