Holiday Snack

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

This isn’t really a healthy meal but I’m categorizing it under my Food is Fuel Category anyway. 🙂 It has bananas in it so erm… that counts.

Made this from scratch over the weekend and just had to share!

Ingredients:

Banana Bread

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, not packed
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups mashed very ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
  • 1/3 cup plain or vanilla yogurt (I used greek yogurt)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon Swirl

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Simple Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream (or half-and-half or milk)

So on Sally’s Baking Addiction which is where I found this, she said to mix everything separately, as we all know I’m no good at reading directions and mixed everything in one bowl, except for the glaze and swirl of coarse. I am no pro and baking and I’d hate to copy her whole post word for word so I placed the link here.
