Fall Baking: Banana Bread

Hello my lovelies!

Long time no blog! Terribly sorry for not posting anything last week. I’ve had a particularly crazy couple of weeks. Anyways, today we are talking about all things related to Fall baking; specifically, banana bread. Now I don’t know about you but I am a total sucker for anything sweet, so you can often find me eating some sort of cake or pie or pinning pictures of such things on Pinterest. But today I’m going to share with you all a recipe for one of my fave fall treats– banana bread!

(And to all those out there who are gluten free or trying to watch what they eat, I got you covered. One slice of this banana bread is under 80 calories and completely gluten free!)

You will need:

2 large eggs

1/2 cup of honey (you could also use maple syrup, stevia, or any other sweetener of your choice)

3/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 1/2 cup of oat flour (again, you can also use any type of flour you would like)

1/2 teaspoon of salt

3/4 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (adjustable to your liking)

1 1/2 cups of mash ripped bananas

Optional mix-ins: chocolate chips, cranberries, nuts, etc.

Preheat the oven to 350*F and grease one 10 inch loaf pan or two 8 inch loaf pans. Mix together the eggs, honey, applesauce, and vanilla. Then, in a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. From there, slowly mix in the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and add the bananas and mix-ins. Bake in the oven for an hour for one 10 inch loaf or 45 minutes for two 8 inch loaves. Then, take it out, take some photos for Instagram, and eat all the banana bread you desire!

So there you have it folks! My absolute favorite recipe for banana bread. But please remember, whether you have these things or not, possessions and treats do not define who you are. No matter if you can afford to bake 100 loaves of banana bread or barely even one, it doesn’t matter. What matters is who you are as a person, and how you’re living out God’s heart and will. You are worth so much more than the amount of likes on a photo or the amount of designer clothes in your closet.

But if any of you do use this recipe, I’d love to see! So please be sure to tag me in all your pics. Anyway, that’s going to be all for today. Make sure you follow me on all my social media to keep up with my everyday life and get ready for some serious Christmas spirit coming soon.

See you soon,

Madeline xo
