Yum. Banana bread. As promised, I baked last night. Wow, is that ever therapeutic. Baking and vacuuming do wonders for my mood! Gosh, how very 1952 of me! I guess right now I'm ...
I guess vs this.
Anyways. Of course. The recipe is Karina's. I've never tried banana bread before, but honestly if you are baking GF, mushy fruit in the recipe is a GREAT omen. It always turns out delicious!
Here's the recipe! I used 4 very ripe bananas and Cornstarch instead of arrowroot starch. I also did one loaf with chocolate chips and one without! You know, for the experimentation...you need a control!
The flour mix, from La la la Linda!
Banana "puree", Or mashed adequately with a fork.
Before! L: No choc chips, but topped generously with coconut, nutmeg and cinnamon. Did you know I had a patient who snorts nutmeg? yep. Whatever floats your boat! And R: hidden beneath the surface you'll find a precisely measured handful of chocolate chips.
Clean up time! Bread baking gives you time to wash dishes AND shower!
And they're out! Cooling away, and smelling fantastic. The coconut browned a little more than I'd like. Maybe next time I'll try it inside the loaf. I then covered them in foil and hit the sack!
This morning I woke up, made my usual breakfast and sat down to study. I was scheduled in the Behavior Emergency Center today, so I had a late shift. It was so nice to enjoy the morning sun. Do you spy George napping on the couch?
Ahhh, a perfect mid morning snack! Banana brunch bliss!
