With rainy days, I just like to dream of sitting by the fire, sipping tea and snuggling up with a great book. But seriously, who am I kidding, those are great THOUGHTS, but do people actually have time to just sit and relax? In our household, we’re constantly on the go – yes, probably a little too much. So, with cold dreary weather, I utilized this time to BAKE. Still somewhat productive and I got the heat from the oven cranking; double win. Also, did I mention we are heading into June and temperatures are still dropping into the low 50s (sometimes even the 40s)?! What gives Mother Nature?
While I would love to say we have been sticking to our healthy eating and meal prep, life has seemed to get in the way. Maybe that’s why I have been MIA from the blog lately as well? To give you a little bit of an update on what has been going on in our lives:
Well, if so, thanks for indulging me in my little rant, but I know full well we are not the only ones super busy. With a crazed schedule comes the need to have food ready to ‘grab and go’ as I like to say. And since I have been neglecting to eat my bananas and had a whole pile of them (which were EXTREMELY ripe), I decided to skip the smoothie and indulge in some warm bread on this dreary day. And I am so glad I did. I even toasted it a bit on the stovetop with some butter mmmmmm.
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan, set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the melted butter, and sugars. Add the eggs, bananas, vanilla and buttermilk; whisk until smooth.
Sprinkle the flour, baking soda and salt over the butter mixture and stir to mix until just combined. Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
Let me know how yours comes out!
