"Mom you know that Banana Bread you like to make for after school?
Well it's basically Awesome!"

Oh so filling & very wholesome, here is our favorite banana recipe to share.

1 cup of (natural sugar cane), or raw sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 big, or 3 medium over ripe smashed bananas

1 Tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 3 Tbsp water, and set aside to thicken for a few min.

1 tsp vanilla extract

a half cup of chocolate chips or substitute with:

(1/4 cup raisins &
1/4 cup chopped walnut halves or another nut you like)

To Make:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix 1 1/3 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 
In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry. 

Pour into a large bread pan that is lightly oiled. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
Enjoy with your favorite Autumn cuppa!

this sounds awesome. I wanted to make banana bread today and realized I was all out of flour. Maybe I should have come see you instead.

Kmarie said...

I did not see this. Yes- someday when you have time by all means bake those delicious cookies:) Sounds Marvellous!
So I stumbled upon a few blogs that I love but this one has some poetry I thought you may like. It also has articles on sensory processing disorder- which was helpful for me to see the difference between that and HSP.

I loved some of the poetry.
Enjoy the sunshine.
