Other Favorite Baked Recipes
Okay, I admit banana bread is trendy right now. It is one of the first things I could actually bake without messing it up. My mom taught me how to make her banana bread family recipe when I was just old enough to be in the kitchen helping. So I have a deep love for banana bread.
What you will need for this recipe
Ripe bananas. If you only have hard bananas you can put them in the oven on very low heat for 15 minutes to brown them. You can also sauté them in a pan with 1 tsp of oil and they will form into the same consistency you need for baking!
Strawberries. just 1 cup of chopped strawberries for this one.
Eggs. You will need 2 eggs, room temperature. I typically pull the eggs out and leave them on a towel for a few hours. Otherwise you can gently hold the egg in your hands for a bit to take the chill out. It’s not a big deal if you don’t have time for this. It just helps keep the coconut oil from solidifying too much.
Baking powder and baking soda. Make sure they are still fresh, otherwise you can mess up your baking easily!
Coconut oil. Or butter – your choice, but to make it dairy free use vegan butter or coconut oil. I try to make as many things as I can dairy free so I often use coconut oil in my baking to do so.
Flour. You can use all purpose gluten free or regular all purpose for this recipe! If you’d like to make your own gluten free all purpose flour, I highly recommend reading up on how to measure for substitutions.
Granola. This is optional for a little crunch! I have been adding it into my baking a lot to liven thing up. I love a little texture and granola is the perfect way to add that.
