This Sh*t is Bananas… B A N A N A S
I seriously LOVE bananas. I will admit, though, that I am a little picky. I only want to eat them when they are a little bit green. Once they start getting too ripe I don’t want them anymore, until they are over ripe and then they are perfect for banana bread and I love them again!
My mom has always made the BEST banana bread. It’s the kind of bread that I dream about, especially in the fall! This year, trying to be healthier on a day to day basis I decided I was going to try to find a recipe that was a little healthier.
Of course I turned to Pinterest, and found TONS of recipes that all looked amazing! So I picked a few and decided to just start trying some!
This one from Body Rock was one of my favorites! I had to look up some measurement conversions, and I adjusted a couple of things… which could be why it didn’t look anything like hers did, but it sure tasted delicious!
1 cup of mashed RIPE bananas or 3 bananas
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
3 Tbsp cinnamon
3 cups oats
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Mash the ripe bananas in a large bowl
- Add in eggs and oil, mixing thoroughly.
- Add in oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, continuously mixing.
- Pour into a bread loaf pan, greased with coconut oil
- Bake for 20-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Most other baked goods recipes that I have tried there is rarely more than a teaspoon or 2 of cinnamon so when this one called for 3 tablespoons, I was pretty surprised and a little worried that I had read it wrong! But it was super tasty! I served it hot (or even reheated for a few seconds) and it was really great! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
