I never find the time for breakfast when I have got to get to school. If I get up earlier I only take longer getting ready and I still don’t have time. Also, I don’t like breakfast early in the morning. When I wake up at a time of my own choosing, I can usually eat breakfast just fine. But when it’s that horrid alarm clock telling me it’s time to get up, the thought of eating anything makes me nauseous. Yes, I am weird like that!
Anyway! In comes delicious, made from scratch, nutritional bread that’s easy to grab and go while on the run, but still a complete, healthy breakfast!
I adapted this recipe from Daily Garnish.
Whole Wheat Blueberry Walnut Banana Bread
- 1.5 cups of whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup macchiato soy milk
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
Preheat the oven at 375F (190C) and grease a baking pan. In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar). In another bowl mash the bananas and add the wet ingredients (eggs, soy milk, vanilla). Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix it up by hand until it’s all mixed together. Fold in the walnuts and blueberries, et voilà!
Pour the mixture in the baking pan and place your pan in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, until the top is golden brown! You can test the bread with a knife.
I like that this bread isn’t really a dough but more like a batter. Because I absolutely hate working with dough. I hate the way it gets all over your hands, yuck!
Of course you can add in different fruits and nuts instead of the blueberries and walnuts. You can also use normal milk or different flavors. You can definitely play around with this recipe! Something I plan in doing a lot in the near future! The recipe is originally vegan, but I was out of flax-seed (note to self: add flax-seed to shopping list) so I couldn’t make a flax egg and had to substitute with normal eggs.
Another plus is that while this bread is in the oven, it will fill your house with the most delicious smell ever!
But the best part is when it’s done and you can cut off the first warm piece and devour it…
It really is very easy to make and so very delicious… It has everything you could need in the morning! Carbs, antioxidants and vitamins, your omega 3, and of course a little hint of coffee flavor. Because let’s face it, who doesn’t need coffee in the morning?
Good morning to you too!
