Kid Friendly, Heart Healthy – Banana Nut Bread or Blueberry Banana Bread
My next few entries will be healthier foods moms and dads can make with their children and for their children. I’m no chef so if I can do it, anybody can.
Recipes that are easy and fast and taste yummy for kids and adults.
1 ¼ cup all purpose flour*
¼ cup whole wheat flour*
3 ripened bananas
¼ cup walnuts or ½ cup blueberries
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 tsp baking soda
¾ cup flaxseed oil
¼ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp salt
Makes 16 slices. Entire load consumed in a 48 hour period!
Mash bananas in a bowl. Add vanilla extract, oil and eggs. Mix all dry ingredients in another bowl (both flours, brown sugar, cinnamon powder, baking soda, salt)
Pour all ingredients into one bowl and mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray oil inside a loaf pan.
Pour batter into the pan
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre of bread comes out clean
*Each subsequent time you make this, increase ratio of whole wheat flour to all purpose flour and see if your kids notice the difference. Ellil noticed when I did ¾ all purpose and ¾ whole wheat flour. She didn’t like it as much. So my ratio is 1 cup all purpose flour to ½ cup whole wheat flour.
