What We Made Today.

Lately while at the grocery store, my kids have been asking for bananas. I don't know if it's because they're drawn into the big huge display of nice bunches of yellow bananas or what but they NEVER eat them. Little sister A used to eat them when she was a baby a lot, so much so that she would become constipated. But now, they sit on my counter and turn black; and every time I'm left wondering why in the heck I bought bananas again!

So what do you do when  your bananas are going bad? - Make banana bread of course!
I know I could have let them get a little blacker but I was craving banana bread so bad I had to make them!

We found the recipe here from {formally recipezaar}

The loafs turned out very well and VERY moist! I can never make a recipe without changing something so here are my personal variations.

  • I added half the amount of sugar {probably could of even used none}
  • used half the amount of canola oil
  • added 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice {could of put 2}
  • used milk/vinegar instead of buttermilk
  • forgot to put in nuts

I was going to freeze one of these loafs so I wouldn't eat so much but my hunnie said "don't worry I'll take one to the shop, I'll have no problem getting rid of it!" So that was that, I don't have to worry about the extra carbs. :)

Happy baking,
