It is designed to be a Pumpkin Bar/Muffin.
1 c pumpkin puree
1 c almond butter (I use raw creamy from Trader Joes)
1/2 c raw honey
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 t vanilla extract
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t cloves
Simply mix it all together and stick it in the oven. 350 degrees - 15 mins for cupcakes or 30 for bars/bread. They are super moist. The only negative is that it doesn't make that many! I have substituted butternut squash and they are equally yum. You probably could do banana, but cut the honey or they'd be too sweet. I will admit, I added 2 leaves of Kale to this batch. Can you see the flecks? Can't taste it. (I blended it in my vitamix first).
And here is a basic recipe that I tweak. I just try to keep the wet ingredients in the same quantity range. When I'm swimming in meyer lemons I add one (zest and juice) and it does just fine. Today I added butternut squash. Yum.
Whole Wheat Zucchini Banana Bread
Adapted from: Marcus Samuelsson
Yields: 1 Loaf | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Bake Time: 55 minutes
1/2 cup honey
1 cup mashed banana
1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
1 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 medium zucchini, grated
1 cup chocolate chips, raisins, dried fruit, nuts, or a mixture of any of these
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a standard-sized loaf pan.
Beat together the eggs, honey, banana, brown sugar, and vanilla until well-combined.
In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Mix into the egg/banana mixture just until combined.
Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips, just until combined.
Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let rest for 20 minutes before removing from the loaf pan. Cool completely on a wire rack.
For best results, store loosely draped with a kitchen towel. Wrapping your bread in plastic or foil will result in gummy texture.
