Brown Bananas

I hope everyone out there is freezing their old bananas for later use! I sometimes forget about them in the freezer until there are a bunch and they start flying out when I open the freezer door.  This happened this morning so......time for banana bread! I've actually never made banana bread from scratch because ya know, you've got to measure things which I DO NOT DO.  But with this fancy bright green mixer taking up a lot of counter space it just screams "Use me!!" So chocolate chip banana bread it is! I roughly followed a recipe online that I had all the ingredients for.  I did change a few things and hopefully it still turns out ok!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I used whole wheat flour in place of bleached, raw sugar instead of white, and added a tablespoon of light sour cream because I was afraid the wheat flour might made it more dry. Since I'm new to baking, this may now be true at all.


Yummy!!




Can't wait to slice into this and enjoy a slice with a cup of gingerbread tea :)

(Frozen banana tip: wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 1 minute, the banana will slip right out the peel and into whatever you want... smoothies, oatmeal, bread, or whatever!)
