Day 305 – October 18
Today was all about banana bread. Well, the entire day wasn’t about banana bread. Actually, I didn’t even think about banana bread until about 8pm tonight. So maybe I should start over.
After the babes were in bed tonight, I got a hankering for banana bread. Fortunately, I had bought a big bunch of super ripe bananas the other day, so I was all set. I did a quick search and found three recipes, which I pinned to my bread board. I ended up only making two of the recipes. I tried the Apple Butter Banana Bread from Recipe4Living’s blog, and the Chocolate Chip Coconut Banana Bread from the blog Spoon Fork Bacon.
I made 6 mini-loaves of the coconut version, and one regular sized loaf of the apple butter. My favorite was the chocolate chip version because it has chocolate! The coconut didn’t really add any extra flavor, it was more just a change in texture, so I’ll just skip that next time. The apple butter banana bread was really pretty good, too. It was spice-y (as in, nutmeg, cloves, etc) and had a really nice flavor. It just didn’t stand a chance against the chocolate chip version!
