Inspiration for new recipes or at least takes on old recipes come at the most unusual times for me. And, one of those times is when I’m in a yoga class. Yeah, yeah, I know my mind should be clear. I should be in the moment. I should be present. But, sometimes I’m having visions of new recipes dance in my head! And that’s how this healthy banana bread recipe came about
I was thinking about smoothies and everything that makes them so delicious and healthy. Then I thought, why can’t I infuse these high-powered health ingredients into other things we love, like banana bread. Well, in actuality this is a banana bread ‘cake’. And, if you choose to make the recipe as a true bread shape, then you’ll need to adjust the cooking time somewhat because of the density of the bread versus the cake.
You know, there’s no reason why we can’t add a few extra healthy ingredients to cakes, pies and cookies and, at least, making them a tad bit ‘healthier’ or better for us. There are ways to skirt all the sugar with substituting something like bananas or applesauce. And, we can power up with ingredients like protein powder, wheat germ, chia seeds, ground flax and nuts. So, give this healthy banana bread (cake) a try. You probably won’t even realize you’re eating all these great things.
