Happy Friday! Gosh can you guys believe that this time next week we will be in a food coma courtesy of Turkey Day? And then there’s only a month till Christmas! And then it’s 2013! I seriously cannot grasp how quickly this year has flown by. It kinda freaks me out to be honest.
Naners are my go to morning fruit. In the summer I love having berries in the morning too, but my go-to no-fail fruit is always a banana!
Lunch was courtesy of a pre-made meal. This is one of my favorite pre-made meals out there, and I try to grab them whenever they are on sale!
With warmer weather fading away (FINALLY!) I decided to use my last bit of ground turkey to make us our final homemade burgers of the year.
And since the day was overcast and gloomy, and I had some naners going bad, I decided to put my apron on and make some of my favorite quick bread! With the holidays right around the corner, I am trying to narrow down by top 3 favorite breads to make for friends for the holidays.
Healthy Banana Nut Bread
All the flavors of a traditional banana bread, made with wholesome ingredients!
3 ripe naners, mashed
1/2 C honey
3T coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 C whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch sea salt
3/4 C chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350. Mix naners with honey and coconut oil. Add in vanilla. Mix flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in another bowl. Slowly mix in wet ingredients. Stir in walnuts. Pour into 9×5 pan and bake for 40-50 minutes.
Its a bit crumbly because Ms. Impatient right here didn’t want to wait for it to cool before I sliced into it. I advise you to wait a little. Unless of course you don’t mind some crumbly banana bread!
What is your favorite quick bread to make?
DO you prefer your banana bread with or without nuts?
