And now you have Gwen Stefani’s song stuck in your head. You’re welcome. In my defense, who can ever say bananas without spelling it out now?
I’ve started what is seeming to turn into a weekly trandition at our home. I found this recipe off of Pinterest but got a little creative with it. What attracted me to this banana bread recipe is that it was for the most part healthy (no sugar or oil!). So, I made it unhealthy and added chocolate chips. Don’t judge.
What you’ll need:
2 cups of flour (or whole wheat flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspon of salt
1/2 cup of cinnamon applesauce
3/4 cup of honey
2 beaten eggs
2-3 mashed overriped bananas (depending on how strong you want the banana flavor)
Handful of walnuts
Handful of chocolate chips
What you’ll need to do:
* Preheat oven to 350 degrees & lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan
* In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soada & salt.
*Seperate bowl mix in cinnamon applesauce and honey
*Stir in eggs & mashed bananas until well blended
*mix everything together
*add walnuts/chocolate chips to your liking
*pour batter into loaf pan
*Extra step- I like to just sprinkle cinnamon on top because it gives it a nice color after baking.*
*Bake in preheated oven for 60-65 minutes
Don’t let the sweet auroma that is sure to fill your house fool you into thinking you can take it out earlier. I succumbed to the smell and took it out early and even though it looks ready, it’s not. Here’s the delicious finished product that is guarenteed to go quick!
