Last week a pretty severe snowstorm locked down the roads and stores, leaving us without much to do besides stay in the warmth and wait out the weather. Typically on a weeknight I’m more concerned with getting ready for the next day than anything else, but on this particular occasion I was looking at a most definite snow day, so I decided to try making banana bread… with a little bit of a twist.
3 bananas (smashed)
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
1 tablespoon pecans
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Beat together banana, honey, and melted butter until mostly smooth. There will still be some banana lumps- try to leave as few of these as possible.
Add the 3/4 cup of sugar, the egg, and the vanilla. Sprinkle in the salt and baking soda. Blend.
Add the flour and blend thoroughly. Finally, add the mini chips and pecans, mixing them into the batter.
Scoop batter into muffin tins. Sprinkle sugar and shredded coconut on top.
Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out of the batter clean. Serves best when warm.
Recipe yields around 12 muffins.
(I used this base recipe, and added different things from there).
