So, I was doing my 2nd deep clean of the kitchen for the week and noticed that I had some major brown bananas still sitting in there. Usually, I use leftover bananas to make babyfood, but, in the business of the week, I forgot that they were sitting there. What to do with over ripe bananas? Make banana bread, of course! Here's a recipe that will leave you wanting banana bread every day of the week--no joke, I went to bed every night this week thinking about the bread I'd be enjoying for breakfast.
3 ripe bananas mashed (.40)
1/3 cup of melted butter (.25)
3/4 cup of sugar (.55)
1 egg beaten (.10)
1 teaspoon vanilla (.10)
1 teaspoon baking soda (.05)
Pinch of salt (.03)
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour (.30)
**Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*Recipe takes an hour to cook, make sure you have enough time!
Mix mashed bananas with the melted butter. Mix in sugar, baking soda, salt and flour.
Mix wet ingredients together (egg, vanilla) and then throw them on top of your other mixture.
Mix your full mixture together and pour into a bread baking dish. Put it into the oven, set your timer for 1 hour and then enjoy!
Total cost for the bread (which provided breakfast for five full days): $1.78 (which averages to a little more than .28 cents a day)
