My husband loves some bananas. I made him a banana cream pie last year at this time, before we were even dating. Naturally, when a recipe pops up on my Pinterest with bananas, I pause, and usually pin.
A month ago I saw a recipe for banana brownies. Clearly a no-brainer, they were also undeniably pretty, which further had me yearning to tweak the recipe. Finally, a month later I have made them! This living between two cities, and five days in a frat house has been challenging for me to experiment in the kitchen. I have equipment and baking materials scattered between the two cities. And the fact that it is not like baking at home. That is my happy place. An idea will pop into my head or work or Pinterest will inspire me or a walk will fill my head with deliciousness, and I will just go in the kitchen and make it. Not as easy lately, plus planning a reception and writing thank you cards. Life has had my attention and my business has not been on the forefront of my thoughts.
But wedding things our done. We have guidance and direction. We are going to be moving into a new apartment in November. Our dogs will be here. I can bake whenever I want. I can shower without Zach standing guard. Our stuff won’t be in boxes and will be in one place. And I will be able to focus here, on my baby, my P3. It is my creative outlet and I miss it. I miss writing. I miss creating. Not to mention being able to make a little space feel like ours. To fill it with good vibes and positivity and love. I look forward to the privacy and freedom again of having something of our own.
Since I finished thank-you cards on Sunday, I promised myself this week, no matter what I would post something. That I will make new recipes. And that I will share them here. So I hope you enjoy, and keep checking this week for more recipes and thoughts to come! These were fudgey perfection! I made the mistake of baking them in little bite-size portions too, which made them a little too easy to pop.
- 2 Bananas
- 1 pasture-raised, local egg
- 1 cup almond flour
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla or banana extract
- 4 oz. white chocolate (check out the Civilized Cavemans recipe for this)
- ¼ cup ghee
Preheat oven to 350. Melt ghee and white chocolate together. Whisk in sugar. Mash in the bananas. Stir in the egg. Add salt and vanilla. Really use some muscle and whisk in the almond flour and coconut flour to ensure there are no clumps. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool, slice, serve and enjoy!
