Best Banana Bread Recipe In Minnesota
So when November showed up did you pull out your holiday recipe books? Even though a welcomed warm spurt showed up when we turned the calendar, this will be the time many kitchens are buzzing in preparation for the holidays.
How about beginning with something easy, comfortable, and always welcomed like Banana Bread?
Let someone else rake the leaves, there's no better time to commandeer the kitchen and start baking. Fill the house with that savory smell.
The world-famous Mayo Clinic has given a slightly different twist to an old favorite. Their banana bread recipe substitutes sugar with pure maple syrup.
My suggestion is to pull out those frozen bananas and use them up. The riper the better, and more flavorful.
- Dates, 1 cup, chopped, pitted
- Self-raising flour, wholemeal, 2 cup(s)
- Baking powder, 2 tsp(s)
- Cinnamon, ground, 2 tsp(s)
- Old fashioned (rolled) oats, 1½ cup(s)
- Banana, 3 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long), ripe and mashed
- Peanut butter, reduced sugar & salt, ⅓ cup(s), runny
- Extra virgin olive oil, 3 tsp(s)
- Unsalted butter, 2 oz(s), melted
- Apple cider vinegar, 2 tsp(s)
- Maple syrup, 6½ tbsp(s)
Mix the dry ingredients, except for sugar together.
Combine egg, oil, sugar, and mashed banana in another bowl.
Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and combine thoroughly.
Spoon into a loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes.
Like your banana bread with walnuts? Me too. Throw a handful or two in.
When you pull the loaf out of the oven to cool, see how long it takes before you have an audience.
