Apples To Bananas



Tonight, Missy baked the THIRD AND FOURTH loaves of BANANA BREAD we've had this week. We're addicted! Actually, the first two loaves were BANANA-NUT breads, but we ran out of pecans tonight. Missy has been using this really simple, no-nonsense recipe:

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup oil

2 mashed bananas

1/4 cup chopped pecans

Pre-heat your oven to 350ยบ. Mash the bananas - make sure they're nice and ripe. Mix all the dry ingredients together with the banana mash. Lastly, mix in the oil, maple syrup, and chopped pecans. Pour and spread mixture into a greased loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes...check to see if the middle is gooey. If it is, stick it back in for another 10 to 15 minutes...obviously, if you don't like nuts, you can totally leave 'em out of the equation.

We've also been getting these free bags of ORGANIC HONEY CRISP APPLES from EARTHFARE. We've been printing out these coupons (we're on the Earthfare mailing list) that allow you to get a free bag of apples whenever you purchase something from their store. So, we've been stockpiling apples the past couple of days! And of course, the apples are as delicious as they are wholesome...

I have to add that this is a recipe I made up after reading recipes for quick breads and using what I have on hand.

I also like to add about 2 tablespoons of honey, too!
