This recipe was inspired by a Banana Bread recipe written by my mother-in-law The Path to Our Table; a family recipe book.
Isn't this cool? My husband's mom, aunts and grandmother got together and made a recipe book for the entire family to enjoy. I certainly appreciate that they put The Path to Our Table together. They added old photos of family events, vacations and other fun memories. So cute! I find my self reaching for this book whenever I feel like recreating a childhood recipe for the hubby.
As I have mentioned many times, one of my favorite things to do is to convert original (old favorite) recipes in to healthier ones. This bread is one of my hubby's and son's favorite sweet indulgences. They both love anything with bananas in it. Who doesn't!
Ok! On to the ingredients...
1 1/2 cup of spelt flour
1/2 cup of melted organic coconut oil
1/4 cup of non fat plain Chobani
4 ripe mashed bananas
1/4 cup of organic apple sauce
a pinch of salt
1 t. of baking powder
24 drops of liquid stevia
1 cap full of vanilla extract
1 t. of cinamon
1 t. of nutmeg
about 1/2 cup of Almond Breeze unsweetened Coconut milk
Over top (optional)..
a handful of carob chips
2 tbsp. of raisins
2 tbsp. of sunflower seeds
Mix all the "main ingredients" in a mixing bowl until well combined. Place mixture in to a bread baking pan. Place the "over top" ingredients over the bread mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until the center is firm. Let the bread cool for about 10-20 minutes before eating.
Hope you give this recipe a try! ;o)
