This Sunday is National Mushroom Day and what better way to celebrate than a mushroom-based recipe.
Mushrooms are fungi and more closely related to humans than to plants. They are able to make there own vitamin D, similar to what our bodies can do when we expose our skin to the sun. Mushrooms have become a wildly popular meat substitute because of its similar rich, earthy, meaty flavor. Some of the most popular varieties consumed include: white button, Portobello, shiitake and oyster.
You might think I have something savory to share but quite the contrary. This chocolate chip loaf is made with mushrooms, reishi mushrooms, that is!
Reishi is a type of mushroom that has been revered for centuries for its perceived healing and immunity-boosting properties. It contains beta-glucan, a soluble fiber that has been largely studied for its ability to activate the immune system.
Reishi pairs well with coffee, chocolate, tea along with other bitter and earthy flavors which makes them a natural addition to REBBL’s reishi-powdered elixirs: Reishi Cold-Brew, Reishi Chocolate, Vanilla Spice Protein, Dark Chocolate Protein & Cold-Brew Protein.
This loaf is made with REBBL’s Reishi Chocolate, whole wheat flour, dark chocolate chips and coconut oil.
