Hey hey y’all! It’s Monday afternoon, I’ve now responded to about thirty emails and still in the process of planning Lemon Life Social’s Blogger Bazaar. If you guys follow me on Instagram and then you know how tedious and stressful it is! I really do feel like i’m planning a wedding in like 50 days. This event is going to be huge and I’m so excited to see how it turns out… It is stressing me the f*** out though. When i’m stressed, I turn to either baking/cooking as a form of therapy. That’s why I now have a huge loaf of warm banana bread in my kitchen.
In the midsts of my email frenzy, I decided to take a break and what did I do? Make banana bread because my bananas we’re about to go bad (FYI, it is best to consume bananas when they are overly ripe! AKA: HAS TONS OF SPOTS ON THEM! Spotted bananas are so rich in antioxidants that they have been linked to cancer prevention. Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF), which functions to destroy tumors, is linked to those brown dots. SOOOOOO brown bananas are actually freaking amazing for you!
This recipe was so easy and it took me less than ten minutes to prep everything and it took a total of about an hour to bake and prepare so I hope you enjoy it! Next time you see your overly ripe bananas sitting on the counter, DON’T throw it out! Make banana bread with it instead…
3 ripe mashed bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips (or more if you’d like mwahaha)
1/2 cup of sugar
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/3 cup of melted butter
1 TSP of cinnamon
1 TSP of Baking Soda
1 TSP of vanilla extract
1 whisked egg
Dash of nutmeg
Pinch of salt
- Preheat the freaking oven to 350 degrees ya’ll
- Mash the bananas in a bowl
- Mix all the ingredients into a bowl
- Grease loaf pan (unless you want it to stick)
- Bake for about 50-60 minutes (check at 50 minutes by sticking a knife to the center of the loaf. It should come out clean with no batter on it!)
- Let it cool on a rack before sliding that sucker out of the pan
- Enjoy with a cup of coffee or milk!
You can omit the chocolate if that’s not your thing, add walnuts, or anything else if you’d like! Tag @kimicoyo in your IG pics! I’d love to see your creation!
