When you ask most people: what do you make with overripe bananas? the answer is banana bread 9 out of 10 times
and that is totally valid!
A great homemade banana bread that transforms brown sad looking bananas into fluffy moist goodness is hard to beat especially if you sneak in some chocolate chips or walnuts 😉
My kids LOVE bananas but we still get stuck with a few brown bananas especially in the summer when it’s hot. I usually peel those and save them in a bag in the freezer and when I have enough, I make this bread. It is super quick and easy to make!
and the best part is: all you need is one bowl
No fancy mixer
The bread freezes beautifully,too.
I usually cut it into slices, wrap each slice individually and freeze them. When anyone is in the mood for something sweet, all they have to do is thaw a slice for an hour, or heat it for a couple of minutes in the oven or grill it in the sandwich press (yours truly is guilty of the last one)
Did the quarantine and lockdown revive any of your old hobbies or inspire you to take up new ones?
For me, baking has been my therapy throughout those dark times. I am back to drawing and I am reading more than ever but the most comforting activity has been baking,
It all started with Pita bread and manakeesh when the lock down closed all the bakeries, then came zaatar rolls, and even sourdough after years of not having an active starter, it took a pandemic and a quarantine to get back into it lol (our baby starter is called Link because my son is playing Zelda Breath of the wild).
For today, I am sharing the breakfast recipe my kids demand the most! Zaatar rolls!
