I also felt the need for some sweetness, so fruit was on the menu as well. A large organic pink lady to be exact.
I went to Costco this afternoon where I picked up my favorite hummus. IÂ told Mommasita this morning that I “NEEDED” the hummus again. It wasn’t a want, it was a NEED. I don’tÂ believe in lying, so she knew it was an emergency. :)Â I was doing cartwheels in the store so happy to finally have it back.
For dinner, we played a game called “operation clean out fridge”. The husband had a leftover burger and potatoes from last night. I had leftover tofu from Friday, so I paired it with a huge salad and some veggies with hummus.
Okay, now what you’ve all been waiting for. The main event. This afternoon I made Vegan Blueberry Banana Bread adapted from FatFree Vegan Kitchen. I made a couple of changes, so I want to make sure to post the recipe below because this bread is absolutely scrumptious.
Vegan Blueberry Banana Bread
What you’ll need:
- 2 large (or 3 small) very ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 cup agave nectar
- 2 cups gluten free flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill, but feel free to use any flour mixture of your choice)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- cinnamon to taste (which means a lot for me!)
- 1 cup blueberries
How it’s done:
- You’ll want to start by mashing up your bananas in a large bowl. Once your bananas are mashed, add the lemon juice to the mix.
6. Baked at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
If your bread looks anything like this when it comes out, you have been successful in your baking adventures.
This bread is perfect – I’m not kidding you. I have had a lot of trouble with my baked goods lately as they have been very dense to say the least. Meg and I both agree my coffee cake still needs a little work, but this bread is fantastic.
Â So, do yourself and your family a favor by making this for them sometime soon! Let me know how you like it as well. I always love honest feedback!
Â I also want to say mad props to Miss Amy who is in the process of organizing an email list and is planning on getting us Chicago bloggers organized to have meet ups and functions! I’m super excited!
I’m off to go eat some bread in the form of cereal (yes, a little weird, but it’s delicious) and relax by catching up on your lives. Have a great night!
Question: Have you ever had a meet up with fellow bloggers? How did it go? I have yet to have any meet ups, and unfortunately missed my chance at THE BIGGEST meet up ever this weekend. I’m excited to perhaps do one soon!
