I tried to make you something healthy, I really really did. I saw a recipe for what I was planning to call “breakfast brownies”, because how cool would that be? I mean, we have breakfast cookies, why not brownies too? They had bananas, applesauce and a boatload of zucchini. I was going to take them to a playdate with a new group of moms I was meeting for the first time. It was a huge fail. Like the whole thing went in the trash failure. Alas, I went empty handed to my playdate brunch. Luckily for you though, I’m not empty handed today. Mr. Sweeter Thing had a craving for banana bread this weekend, soon his craving turned into my craving and it was all downhill from there. I came up a bit short on ingredients but managed to improvise with the stuff I had on hand.
I had three perfectly ripe bananas. Two would have been fine for one batch but I’m a big fan of mass producing food so I doubled the recipe so we would have a loaf for next weekend too (new weekend tradition anyone?). For some reason I had an abundance of banana baby food in the cupboard, which is funny because the little Sweeter Thing hasn’t eaten baby food in over a year. Oh well…love those preservatives! Rather than mash the bananas separately, I opted for throwing them into the kitchenaid first.
