Mid-Week Treat: Banana Bread

Lately, we've been trying to do more grocery shopping than usual in order to cook at home more, be healthy, and save a little money. However, we find that when we do this, things always come up. Dinner invitations, goodbye parties, birthday parties, etc. So that leaves us with a fridge full of food that unfortunately, spoils. And the quickest to go bad? Our fruit! So now with a bunch of over ripened bananas, I decided to do a little baking. My friend Kim had given me a very easy and awesome recipe about a year ago, so I did a little digging and found it. I also wanted to add something a little extra, so of course I headed over to Smitten Kitchen. And I found the perfect thing. You can try the jacked-up version on that site, or use Kim's below, which works out great if you're low on ingredients.

3 ripe bananas
3/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup melted butter

Instructions: Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. Check to make sure your toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy! ♥

Lydia :

yum!! this banana bread looks DELICIOUS and simple to make!! :) We recently made some with honey for sweetener and substituted wheat flour with quinoa flour.

It is so simple, I love it. And I've never used quinoa flour! Interesting idea, I'll have to go find it around here. Thanks for the tip, Lydia! xo.
