Como andam as coisas ai no Brasil? Aqui está tudo ótimo.. Meu MBA começou ontem novamente e eu nem acredito que já estamos quase em Setembro! Sério, o tempo está V-O-A-N-D-O!!!
Mas então, vamos falar de comida? Eu sempre gostei de bolo de banana ou o famoso “banana bread” aqui dos EUA, mas esse especialmente ficou TOP! Eu usei o mix do Kodiak Cakes com sabor de aveia e canela ao invés da farina integral. Com certeza deu um toque especial na receita e deixou o “banana bread” super macio e com sabor extra de canela que eu AMO!
“Banana-Nut Bred” Americano na Versão Saudável
½ xic. de óleo de coco
⅓ xic. de mel
¼ xic. de iogurte grego
1 col. de chá de essência de baunilha
1 xic. de banana madura (2-3 bananas médias)
1¾ xic. “PROTEIN PACKED – Cinnamon Oat” Kodiak Cakes mix ( pode usar farinha integral ou farinha de preferência)
Canela a gosto
1 col. de chá de fermento em pó
½ col. de chá de sal
½ xic. de nozes picadas
Chips de chocolate amargo
Modo de preparo:
Pré-aqueça o forno a 180 graus.
Misture a farinha, canela, ferment em pó, sal, e reserve.
Em outra tigela misture bem os ovos, óleo, mel, iogurte, e essência de baunilha. Adicione as bananas, a mistura seca, e as nozes picadas.
Transfira a massa para uma forma de pão já untada e cubra a massa com chips de chocolate amargo e mais nozes picadas.
Leve ao forno por mais ou menos 55 minutos ou até passar no “teste do palito”. Espere esfriar por uns 10 minutos e sirva com um bom café passado!
Dica da Sheina: Eu gosto de colocar fatias de “banana bread” na tostadeira e depois colocar pasta de amendoim por cima… Fica DEMAIS!
How is your week going so far? I’m really excited for the Fall… My MBA classes started back yesterday and I still can’t believe how fast summer went by!
Anyway, lets talk about food? I love Banana Bread but this recipe specially is to die for! I used the Kodiak Cakes “PROTEIN PACKED – Cinnamon Oat” mix instead of regular wheat flour, and it definitely HIT THE SPOT! The banana bread turned out super moist and tasty!
Whisk the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt, and set aside.
In a different bowl, beat eggs, coconut oil, honey, greek yogurt and vanilla extract until well blended. Stir in the smashed bananas, Kodiak Cakes mix and chopped walnuts.
Pour batter into 9×5 inch greased loaf pan, sprinkle with some dark chocolate chips and some chopped walnuts. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until it passes the “toothpick test”. Cool for 10 minutes, slice and ENJOY with a cup of coffee!
Sheina’s tip: I like putting my banana bread slices in the toaster and then topping it with PB. Simply THE BEST!!!
