Banana-Carrot Bread!

Fruit?…..check!
Veggies?……check!
3 hungry boys?……check, check & check!

All the makings for a great after school snack!

I’m always trying out new banana bread recipes and this one is made with lots of grated carrots…sneaking in those veggies anywhere I can! I had this ready for the boys after school today and the entire loaf is almost gone!

The recipe is as follows:

2 Cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 smashed bananas
1 Cup sugar
1/4 vegetable oil
3/4 Cup sour cream (fat free is fine)
2 eggs
1 Cup finely grated carrots
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract (you can substitute vanilla if you’d like)

Preheat oven to 350

1. Sift all dry ingredients except sugar.
2. Combine bananas, sugar, oil, eggs, almond extract and sour cream; add to dry mixture.
3. Fold in carrots.
4. Spread in greased loaf pan *use Large loaf pan or 2 small loaf pans, as this makes quite a bit of batter!
5. Bake for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean!

Serve warm with butter, and listen to the ‘quiet bliss’ as your little ones gobble this up!
