Week 5: Banana Bread

For some reason, I’ve always been afraid of baking breads. I’m not sure why, I’m just afraid that I’ll mess it up. The draw back to that is, I love bread. No joke, when I was younger we would always stop at a bakery on my way home from school to try samples at the bakery. I also loved having challah as a snack when I was younger. So this week, I decided to challenge myself and make banana bread. I used a recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie again (I love this website, it’s amazing) and decided to omit the chocolate chips. I later decided that was a stupid mistake, but oh well, I know better for next time.

2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup of milk
1 and 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup of maple syrup
1 and 1/2 T lemon juice
1 stevia packet
2 cups of tightly-packed mashed banana
1/3 to 2/3 cups of chocolate chips (I omitted this which was a HUGE mistake)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
2. Combine and mix all dry ingredients
3. In a different bowl, mix all wet ingredients and then mix into the dry ingredients
4. Grease a loaf pan and pour your mixture into it
5. Cook in the oven for about 50 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine dry ingredients, and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients and mix into dry. (Mix by hand, and don’t overmix.) Pour into a greased loaf pan and cook for around 50 minutes.

Maybe I’ll try to make challah next time!
