This is the best recipe I have made from this book so far. Great fuel for training! Or breakfast this morning…
Adapted from The Athlete’s Palate
Makes 12 servings
Prep Time: 20 min/Bake Time: 45 min
1 2/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 heaping cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 1/2 mashed, ripe bananas
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x 4 in pan. Mix dry ingredients, except for sugar.
Beat sugar and eggs until fluffy. Add oil, bananas, applesauce, sour cream and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add flour mixture and walnuts.
Pour into pan. I chose to add some extra walnuts on top. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes.
Try not to eat the whole loaf yourself.
Because I would eat the entire loaf all by myself, I immediately cut some up to give to my mom.
*Does banana bread count as healthy??
*At the grocery store yesterday I also bought the ingredients for Walnut and Blueberry Bran Pancakes and Zucchini Muffins…apparently I am going carb crazy. It is going to be a busy weekend.
