Hey guys! Now that fall is coming around, it's time to start fixing some yummy fall goodies! This recipe is one I found online from SimplyRecipes.com at one time and then modified it to fit how we liked them. Bananas are one of my favorite fruits, and Traycer loves them too! We always buy a bundle of bananas at the store every trip, and in turn, sometimes some of them go brown faster than others, which then means we get to make one of our favorite types of bread! Banana bread!!!! Here is the recipe modified from all the one listed above! Try it out! Also there are a lot of other easy fixings on there for meals too!
*2-3 very ripe bananas, or browned (if ours start to get brown we let them, and then put them in the freezer to keep until were ready to make our bread)
*1/3 cup melted butter or instead try 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt or greek yogurt! LOVE THAT!
*1/4 cup of sugar (you can add all the way up to 1 cup depending how sweet you want them, we just like less sugar)
*1 egg, beaten (from our awesome home chickens)
*1 teaspoon vanilla extract (our friend Stacie home made some vanilla for us… it's AMAZING!!!)
*Pinch of salt
*1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (we use wheat!)
*1 cup or half cup of Quaker Oats (for the mini muffins)
What to do:
*Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter or spray pam on whatever size pan you'd like. (we do some in a small glass bread loaf pan and then the extras go into miniature muffin trays)
*In a bowl, thaw our/mash the your bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter or yogurt into your mashed bananas. *Mix in baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
*Pour the batter into your prepared pan/trays (we add the oatmeal to the last little batch for the mini muffins at the end). Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) for the pan, and for the muffin trays bake for 8 minutes check them there and then add a minute or two if needed!
*Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan and the muffins from the tray! ENJOY!!!!!
Till next time!
