I haven’t done an egg-free post in a while. I have been in a little bit of a cooking slump lately. Somehow my boys became finicky eaters, and frankly I am tired of throwing food away.
Desperate to get them to eat breakfast (and needing to use up some ripe bananas), I searched for a banana bread recipe. I found a winner!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread adapted from food.com
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cup flour *I used 3/4 whole wheat, and 3/4 all purpose
- 2 small handfuls of chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a bread pan.
Combine bananas and butter. Mix in milk and vanilla.
Add in brown sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Add in flour, mix until just combined. *Don’t over mix, your bread will be rubbery!* Gently mix in chocolate chips.
Pour into prepared bread pan and bake for one hour, or until toothpick comes out clean.
I am happy to say, the boys love this bread! I am planning on trying it with zucchini as soon as it is ready to pick.
How do you deal with finicky eaters? If you have any tips, please share! I am at wits end trying to get them to eat good food. They used to be such good eaters, so maybe (hopefully) this is just a stage two year olds go through….
