Banana Walnut Bread

When we woke up this morning, our house felt like Fall. We slept with the windows open last night and there was a cool, crisp breeze blowing through our bedroom. I love Fall. I immediately wanted to jump out of bed and bake pumpkin bread. Well, maybe not immediately... but after a lazy hour or so relaxing and hanging with Robert. But then he reminded me that we still have plenty of Fall ahead and maybe, since it's still August, it's a bit too soon for pumpkin. Don't want to get sick of it too soon!

So, I baked Banana Walnut Bread instead. The house smelled even better and we sat down to a lovely quiet breakfast of hot bread with melted butter and coffee. It felt happy, calm and peaceful. Here's the recipe I made:

Banana Walnut Bread
  • 3 mashed very ripe Bananas, about 2 1/3 cup
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Applesauce
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 cups Brown Rice Flour
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped Walnuts
Preheat your oven to 350 F and lightly grease a loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the banana, eggs, applesauce, brown sugar & vanilla extra. Mix well. I use my immersion blender to process thoroughly. It makes things easy & quick to clean up! Stir in the baking soda, salt & brown rice flour. Mix well. At this point, I usually switch to a whisk or a mixer.  Stir in the walnuts. Pour into your greased loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes. 

Working on new designs!
After breakfast, I worked on samples for some new designs I'm planning on launching over the next few months. It feels so weird to work on new Mother's Day items in August but it does get me excited for what's to come. Then some yard work and now I'm off to my Yoga Birth Method class for some stretching and meditation. I can't believe this is my last week before I'm in my 3rd trimester. It seems like time is flying by and at the same time, 3 more months seems like way too long to wait to meet this kid. Insanity!

Oh, and don't forget... There's still a giveaway for a custom engraved bracelet going on. Only 5 more days to enter!
