Hey everybody! Well, this is my very first blog and my very first post! I am really excited! My first recipe is really simple to throw together and very delicious! Not only is this banana bread yummy, but it’s also healthy. It’s made with honey instead of refined sugars and it’s got oats!
Okay, so maybe there is a cup of chocolate chips. Let’s just pretend that they aren’t there. Of course once you take a bite of warm banana bread with semi-sweet, melted, gooey chocolate chips it’s probably gonna be pretty hard to pretend that they aren’t there!
This bread would be great on a cool, fall afternoon for a little snack. You could also pop a slice in the toaster for breakfast and layer on a very
unhealthy delicious amount of butter! Either way, you should make it. Soon!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread1/2 cup butter (softened) 2/3 cup honey 2 eggs 1 1/2 cups mashed banana (about 3 large) 1/2 milk 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 3/4 cups flour 1/2 cup ground flaxseed 1/2 cup oats 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup chocolate chips (you could always put in some chopped nuts too!) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Next, mix together softened butter and honey. Add eggs, milk, banana, and vanilla. Mix well. Sift in flour, baking soda, and salt. Add ground flaxseed and oats. Mix until fully combined. Lastly, add chocolate chips and mix. Add batter to 2 greased loaf pans and bake for about 45 min. It may even take a little bit longer.
