Beets lend this breakfast- or dessert-worthy Chocolate Chunk Red Velvet Bread earthy sweetness and vibrant color. Slices can be served with a smear of butter or your favorite nut butter, topped with dollops of ricotta, or as is … so that each chocolate morsel shines through.
Heat oven to 350 F. Line 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving 1 inch overhang.
In blender or food processor, place cooked beets, banana, milk, sugar, and oil and blend until smooth. Blend in eggs.
In large bowl, stir together rice flour, coconut flour, baking powder, ginger powder, and salt. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix gently until everything is moist. Fold in dark chocolate chunks. Place mixture in loaf pan and sprinkle on pistachios.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out mostly clean. Let cool for 10 minutes in pan and then lift out using parchment paper overhang.
