No Eggs? No Problem Banana Bread.

So, going off the previous post about at home banana chai smoothies, I can easily say that I really LOVE being a health freak but absolutely HATE, HATE, HATE bananas — something about the texture, maybe it’s even the actual taste, but either way, just like when you hide things in your child’s ice cream to give them nutrition, I had to figure out a way to incorporate bananas into my diet, even if it meant cheating and making it into a dessert.

We had bananas that we purchased solely to make chai but I realized we were juicing way more than making smoothies and the bananas were becoming extremely ripe — we all know what that means…

BANANA BREAD!

I was so excited remembering the recipe my mom had since I was a little girl passed down from generation to generation and I frantically looked around the condo for ingredients realizing that we didn’t have eggs and it was 8 p.m. — to the average person, 8 p.m. is ridiculously early but for a co-mom of two puppies, 8 p.m. feels like 1 a.m. every…single…day. So since I was already in my pajamas and refusing to get into the car to travel to the store, I wondered if I could make do with what we had, which would be a recipe without eggs but with flour, sugar, salt, vanilla, baking soda, margarine, and bananas.

Recipe:
1.5 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 regular sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 stick margarine
1 tsp salt
4 extremely ripe bananas

–add in chocolate chips or make a peanut butter glaze (2 lg tbs peanut butter, 1 tbs water, 1 tsp flour — pipe it onto the top, delicious!)

Preheat oven to 325. Grease a pan — we used an 8″ cake pan. Cream together the butter and sugar — then add vanilla, mix together. Begin to add in flour a little at a time and mix with butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add salt and baking soda.

In a separate bowl, mash bananas until a consistency you like — I mash ours until there’s only small chunks, since as we discussed, I despise this fruit…after they are mashed, add to other bowl and combine. Pour into pan and cook until top is golden brown, approx. 20 minutes.

I guarantee you will LOVE bananas after this! We seriously can’t get enough of it.

    • Oh my gosh, having two pups, I feel like all we do is make easy recipes. I’ll be posting one about thai spring rolls with homemade peanut sauce soon! Are there any recipes you’ve seen that look complex and time consuming that you’d rather have be easier? I’m sure we can whip something up ;).
