I do not have much cooking to report because of THIS:
The Husband and I finally got to go camping, for the first time this summer. What a relaxing couple of days we had!
And when we camp, The Husband does the cooking.
Chili-cheese dogs by the fire - works for me!
Because no post would be complete without a recipe though, I will share one that I have made many times. A healthier version of your average banana bread, just as delicious, and yes, with added chocolate chips :)
Banana/Apple Bread, No Fat Added:
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
Optional: 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F and grease a loaf pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together mashed bananas + honey + applesauce + vanilla extract.
In a large bowl, combine flour + baking soda + baking powder + salt + cinnamon.
Stir wet and dry ingredients until just combined - be careful not to overmix.
Fold in the apple and the optional ingredients. A few walnut pieces can be sprinkled on top.
Transfer to loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes.
This recipe has become a staple in our house!
Have a fantastic weekend!
