This banana blueberry bread is much healthier than traditional banana bread. The banana bread I usually make has so much sugar in it that the top gets a beautiful crystalized crust. Its so good – but its really not something I should be making a lot. So I recently started testing out new healthier recipes….
Christmas is over! We survived! Phew. It was touch and go there for a bit. One too many glasses of hot chocolate…and don’t even get me started on the cookies. I can’t even look at them anymore. Not that it stops me from eating them mind you. I just do it with my eyes closed….
I got a new camera lens this week. It is nothing expensive or fancy, but I am still pretty excited. It’s a Cannon EF 50mm f/1.8II. I have been taking pictures of everything…Robocop, my dog, the cool tree outside, the glass of water on the counter, my foot…you know, really anything I can point…
Yum Wow has it been a long week. In addition to playing with food (i.e sharing our kitchen exploits with you fine people!) we also run a company together. Don’t worry I won’t bore you with that stuff. Yuck day jobs. But…it has been a long week, a good week, but a long week. We…
Yum Alright I admit it….I love bread. Don’t kill me. I know, the Carbs! The gluten! The sugar! Oh no I can hear the Paleo police knocking at my door!!! But whatever, like I said I love bread. Before I became an adamant clean eater I used to make these Parker House Rolls. Mmmmm rolls….
On a different topic I am starting to believe that butternut squash is one of those foods that can be made into anything. Sort of like coconut. While wasting time doing recipe research on Pinterest the other day I stumbled upon a picture of butternut squash bread. I was like WHAT? How did I not know about this??? I guess it makes total sense. If you can turn pumpkin into bread why not butternut squash? I love bread…I love butternut squash…why had this never occurred to me!
So here it is my recipe for butternut squash bread. It it insanely easy to make, you don’t even need an electric mixer. And it is so good. A great alternative for when you just can’t take one more bite of pumpkin anything. You know what I am talking about…
Yum My husband’s side of the family has some strong Danish roots. His grandmother was adamant that each of her grandchildren learn as much as possible about what that meant to her. And, mostly it meant food. She was an amazing cook. I have heard legendary stories about the food she created over the years….
I have to admit it surprised me how good this bread is! And this is coming from someone who has admitted on many occasions that I don’t like cooked apples (I know!). I used my homemade applesauce, which is made with local Fuji apples. I also used local whole wheat flour which I bought at the farmers market and some local honey. The Greek yogurt gives it an amazing texture and the flavor is out of this world. Once you try this bread you will be addicted. I am on my third loaf already!
