      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Mill almond meal
  1. If making your almond meal from whole almonds: 


    Place almonds in bowl and mill 20 SECONDS/SPEED 9. 


    Transfer almond meal to another bowl and add additional whole meal flour (if using). 

    *If you don't want to use flour, mill a full 3 cups of almond meal. 



  2. Incorporate Ingredients
  3. Preheat fan forced oven to 160 degrees


    Add pumpkin and bananas to bowl and mix 2 SECONDS/SPEED 6.5.


    Add eggs, salt, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, maple syrup and coconut oil and mix 5 SECONDS/SPEED 4.5.


    Add dry ingredients (almond meal/flour mixture and baking powder) to bowl. Mix 10 SECONDS/SPEED 5 Counter-clockwise operation (or until all ingredients have incorporated).


    Place into a lined loaf tin and bake for 65-70 minutes.



    Let cool in the pan for an hour before slicing.



Accessories you need



ADDITIONS: Add pepitas on top before baking or mix chia seeds in after incorporating the almond meal for additional fibre 

If you have a sweet tooth, add as many as 3 teaspoons of maple syrup or honey. I've tried this with only 1 tsp of maple syrup and it really doesn't give it any 'oomph', in my opinion. 

The ratio of pumpkin to banana doesn't seem to be a major factor in the end consistency of the bread - you just need to make sure you have 450 grams combined.

PALEO/GLUTEN FREE/GRAIN FREE (use 3 full cups of almond meal instead of using whole wheat flour).
