We’ll call it a celebration, I mean that’s what happened when I made this dessert. My hubs Malcolm, told me this was the best dessert I’ve made thus far and I think it has everything to do with the enhancements from the original recipe. While I am not going to take any of the credit for the ideas or recipe modifications, they definitely make this one of the tastiest desserts that could be whipped together for any celebration!
Last year, as we ventured down this paleo (-ish) lifestyle immediately after the New Year, those first three weeks of detox from sugar, carbs, processed foods and alcohol were virtually impossible!!! And our bodies were in a state of shock, sure that first week was not that bad but then the withdrawals started. It was not until a friend who had already ventured down this road sent me a link to pumpkin muffins that helped us fill the void.
A good friend of ours was trying to gather people together for a birthday party and I offered to bake a cake. Now the hard part for me was to decide whether to go old school or new school, meaning traditional flour or alternative grain free sources. Well since most of the people that would be attending this party, eat somewhat healthy, I figured it would be a nice way to try something new.
So while I grabbed two bunches of organic bananas at the store the other day, people might have given me a strange look. But what they did not know is that four bananas go into the most delicious and simple banana bread recipe I’ve made in a long time. The best part…the bananas can be yellow! That’s a big plus as you no longer need to leave the bananas on the counter for the week or store them in a brown paper bag to get them deeply ripened.
