Grandmother’s favorite Banana Bread

This is a recipe that I got from my grandmother, she made it for my dad when he was a kid, and she still makes it now. It is one of my favorite desserts to make using over ripe bananas that you wouldn’t use otherwise!

Note: To make a healthier option, substitute applesauce for butter, and half the sugar.

 

Ingredients:

2 bananas

1/4 lb. butter

1 1/2 cups flour

2/3 cup sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

2 eggs

1/4 cup milk

2 tsp. lemon juice

1/2 cup chocolate chips – optional

1/2 cup walnuts/pecans – optional

 

Step 1. Preheat oven to 350º. Melt butter. Blend together the bananas and butter. If you do not have a blender you can use a spoon to mush the bananas together.

Step 2. Put all the other ingredients into a large bowl.  Mix well. Add banana mixture.

Step 3. Put loaf in tin of your choosing. If you put the batter into a cupcake tin to turn them into muffins, keep in mind that you will not need to cook them for as long as a normal loaf.  Bake, testing every 5-10 min with a toothpick to see when the banana bread is ready. If there are crumbs on the toothpick you need to cook it for longer. Depending on how big your tin is, or how much you put it, it will take a longer or shorter time to cook. For a loaf, the average amount of time it will take is 55-60 min. For the cupcakes, 40-50 min should wort.

Step 4. Serve with jam or whipped cream. Enjoy!

Toast the bread as much as you like. While toasting, mash the avocado and slowly add in salt until smooth. When the bread is done, spread the avocado onto the bread and then add the olive oil on. Spread the olive oil all around until it is mixed in.  Then add the diced tomatoes, cilantro, and chia seeds. The tomatoes, cilantro, and chia seeds are optional depending on what you like.
