I bought two bunches of bananas last night, still a little green. But that doesn't stop the boys from cutting into every single one looking for a ripe fruit. Now, I could have trashed them, but decided to turn an aggrivating situation into a mouth watering one.
♥ Chocolate Chip Strawberry Walnut Banana Bread Recipe ♥
1 c sugar
1/2 c vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda (oops, I used baking powder and it was fine)
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 long squirt lemon juice
1 c walnuts
1 c chopped strawberries
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix sugar, oil, eggs, bananas, lemon juice and vanilla together in one bowl. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix them together. Stir in walnuts, strawberries and chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes in a greased bread pan (or muffin pan, just lower the time).
I don't like to smother on butter, I like just a small little hint on a thick, warm slice of bread.
My little guy couldn't shove it down his throat fast enough before begging for another piece.
