We are really trying hard to be more conscious when we shop, what we make and the food that we are using versus throwing out. We used to have a fix-all for leftover food – his name was Kevin. Unfortunately for us, if we don’t use it, it now is wasted and we really want to limit the food we are wasting. So, with three bananas on the verge of going bad and some strawberries that I had seen some better days, I decided to add a handful of strawberries (5-7) to my Grandma’s banana bread. Since just about everything else combines the two, I figured this would be a no-brainer.
Personally, I thought the results were a little lack-luster so obviously as no surprise, Brad loved it and said that it is definitely a keeper. So, here is the recipe. Decide for yourself.
1 1/2 C flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t cinnamon
3 mashed bananas
3/4 C sugar
1/4 C oil
handful of strawberries (mash this with the bananas – I use an immersion blender)
Mix all of the ingredients together. Grease a loaf pan and cook at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
