Banana Bread

Banana Bread

This recipe is quick and easy! It's a great way to get rid of those bananas that are bit too ripe! Who doesn't have a few of those lying around? ;o)

What You'll Need:
1/2 cup of safflower oil or unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup of organic cane sugar
2 eggs
3 very ripe bananas
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of sea salt
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans (or nuts of your choice), optional
2 cups of unbleached all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Beat together bananas, sugar, eggs and apple sauce. Add remaining ingredients, except flour and mix well. Stir in flour until just incorporated.

Pour batter into a loaf pan or muffin pans that have been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake loaf for 1 hour or until loaf sticks done. Bake muffins for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

Makes 1 loaf or about 24 muffins.

Banana Bread

Notes: You can add a cup of raisins or chocolate chips to mix it up a bit. As stated in the recipe any type of nut will work as well. Blueberries would make a nice addition or peaches, for a multifruit loaf. As always play around with it...You never know what you might come up with! ;o)
