Are you wondering what to do with these sad looking bananas?
Make banana bread! I have a serious love for sweet breads. My Mom makes amazing carrot bread, zucchini bread, pumpkin bread and banana breads. I will post these recipes soon as they are to die for. In the meantime, I had a hankering for banana bread and wanted to try a new recipe. Here it is, folks! It is absolutely fabulous...moist yet with a crunchy "crust," the flavors just pop in your mouth. I put about 2-3 T. of Chia seeds in this recipe...you don't have to add these if you don't have them on hand, but I do love how they add a little crunch to the bread and also add great nutrition.
1/2 cup butter, softened
3oz whipped cream cheese
1 cup brown sugar
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup fat-free plain greek yogurt
1 1/2 cups flour
3 T. chia seeds
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat over to 350. Grease a loaf pan.
Cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in mashed banana, yogurt, and egg and mix ’til smoothe. Stir in dry ingredients. Bake for 60-75 minutes.
Doesn't get much better than a peanut butter and apple butter banana sandwich with a big glass of milk...oh and some carrots for good measure ;)
