Recipe: Egg-free Banana Bread

Green Bean Delivery delivered a small bin of fresh produce & vegetables to my front door (awesome!) and I had a blast trying new things (purple potatoes) as well as jazzing up some pasta sauce with giant portabellas! But no matter how hard we tried - we still had a couple things we couldn't get to. 

Look at these sad bananas. :-(

So what do you do with old bananas? MAKE BANANA BREAD!

I hit up Pinterest to find a recipe for banana bread without eggs and SUCCESS! And it was EASY! 

First - you mash up your old bananas. I have to say - I don't like or eat bananas - but I like the flavor (so pudding & bread are fine). It's a magical fruit that's solid one minute and then a juicy mush the next. It literally took nothing to decimate bananas. That's just crazy.

Then I creamed sugar & butter - not difficult to do. I always try and use softened butter for this - and then beat it for a few minutes.

I'm a novice baker to say the least - I don't even have a mixer! Well I have a hand blender that has a wisk attachment. I've been pretty shocked at how well it works! And it's less than $30! I got it as a gift after a fundraiser and didn't think I'd ever use it - but it's been awesome! You just pop the attachment on and go! 

So then you mix together your banana, butter/sugar and dry ingredients - mix mix mix and you're ready to go into the pan (or muffin tin).

You bake for 45 minutes and your crusty on the outside, soft and delicious on the inside banana bread is ready for you and your loved ones!

I couldn't wait until breakfast - I dove right in and grabbed some butter for a warm comforting treat! Delicious!

And in an hour - I had egg-free banana bread to finish up my delicious Green Bean Delivery bin. I made such great stuff and can't wait until the next one comes!

Green Bean provided me this sample bin and a coupon code that expires Saturday Dec 21 good for $15 off your first order: 15TFHml. Be sure to use it while you can - you won't be sorry!

And while you're waiting for your green bin of goodness to arrive - here's the recipe for you to make!
