Recipe: 'Naner Bread!

Banana bread is one of my FAVORITE ways to use produce that you would normally need to chuck.  I constantly buy a huge bunch of bananas, and we eat 2 or 3 before the others turn brown.  I started freezing the rest of the bunch when it was no longer edible (at least to my liking; i love green-yellow bananas but don't really love them when the start to freckle) and defrosting them later to make bread!  This recipe is super easy for the non-baker and you don't need any fancy baking equipment except a wooden spoon!  Add chocolate chips to the mix if you want to get fancy...LOVE!

Banana Bread
3-4 ripe bananas
1/3 c. melted butter
1 egg, beaten
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix butter into mashed bananas with a wooden spoon.  Mix in sugar, egg, and vanilla.  Sprinkle in baking soda and salt.  Add flour last.  Pour mixture into greased 4x8 loaf pan and bake 1 hour.


 These will be delicious soon :)
