I've been trying to cut down on our food waste lately.
Cleaning out the fridge is always an eye opener,
so after the last time I vowed that I would try not
to be such a waster.
So today when I saw that our bananas were beginning to spoil,
I immediately thought of banana bread.
This ended up working out on 2 parts, I got to use
the bananas and the small amount of walnuts that was leftover.
Here's to the beginning of a less wasteful kitchen!
Banana Nut Bread
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
A pinch of nutmeg
1/3 cup butter, softened
2 or 3 mashed bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
chopped walnuts (as much or as little as you like)
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Grease a loaf pan and set aside.
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt,
cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar into a large bowl.
Add in the eggs, bananas, vanilla, and softened butter.
Mix until just combined, then stir in walnuts.
Transfer mix to the greased loaf pan and bake
for 40-45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
After baking turn out loaf from pan
and let cool completely.
-or- slice it while it's warm and
slather it in butter...for a slightly
unhealthy (but sooo delicious) snack.
