Fall Baking: Banana Bread & Muffin Recipe
Hey friends! So today's recipe isn't specifically a "fall recipe" but fall is the perfect time for baking, so I thought I'd share a recipe I made recently which is so yummy! :) A perfect way to use up bananas that are too ripe for eating by themselves. With this recipe, you have the choice of bread or muffins, hence the name. :) Normally I would make one or the other, but this time I made both!
Banana Bread & Muffin Recipe
Makes: 2-3 loaves of bread depending on pan size and how full you fill them or 24-36 muffins (I made 2 loaves of bread and 12 muffins)
11/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup oil (I used coconut, but any vegetable oil works)
2 teaspoons vanilla
31/2 cups flour (I used whole wheat to make it healthier)
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
6 ripe bananas,mashed
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease loaf pans/or put muffin liners in muffin pans.
2. Mix together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix in bananas.
3. Add dry ingredients and nuts, if desired. Mix well.
4. Fill pans and bake. Bake loaves for 60 min. Bake muffins for 16-20 min.
Enjoy! Make sure to schedule a baking session (or two) into this coming week! ;)
