OMFG BANANA-BLUE BREAD

Bread is perhaps the most classic of foods,

Jesus broke it, we have it in different ways at different occasions. We have it with soup, spreads, and fill up on it before meals at restaurants. There’s rye bread

robbing old ladies for rye

, Challah bread (SO good, thank you Jewish people) , and probably lots of other breads.

All this time while bread is basking in glory, off in a lonely fruit stand corner, or perhaps sitting atop some elaborate tropical headgear, there is the banana.

To whoever decided these two food items would make a good couple, you are a genius, and you will make me fat.

BUT NOT WITH THIS KIND! There’s no butter OR oil, cause it’s all healthy ‘n’ shit – but still delicious.

This version is fun, colourful, and inventive. It will be as if original banana bread had a sexy second cousin named Blueberry, and maybe they do things at night because they’re not blood related, so there’s a chance their offspring will turn out okay.

STEP 1: LET BANANAS GET DISGUSTING
classic banana bread requires for you to use bananas as black as a night sky in the wilderness, or like a banana that has been sitting out too long.

STEP 2: MASHY TIME
Combine 2 eggs with 3 disgusting bananas and MASHY!

In another bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, a teaspoon of salt, 3/4 cup white sugar, and a teaspoon of baking soda….

What the hell does baking soda do anyway? I don’t know. Just stir it in and accept it for the mystery it is.

STEP 3: PUT THE GOO IN THE FLUFF

By the way, you should have pre-heated the oven to 350 degrees like 10 minutes ago…
Dump the banana-egg mixture into the flour mixture.

This mix can get a little dry
with the whole, no oil thing, so add 1/4 cup of milk if you’re feelin it.

STEP 4: GET CREATIVE
Now, rebel against the standard rules of banana bread. This part of the procedure is the PARTY. Make your banana bread like a fucking pinata if you want!

Don’t let tradition hold you back, you can add stuff like cinnamon, nutmeg, applesauce, walnuts, other nuts, something crazy like coconut, I added blueberries AND chocolate chips
Now, if you want muffins, pour into a buttered muffin pan, if you want bread, pour into a bread pan, aaaand oven it up for 20-30 minutes.

I chose muffins.

STEP 5: OPTIONAL DECOR
Stick a toothpick in to make sure it comes out clean and they aren’t mush in the centers. When your muffins are done and your house smells amazing, you may or may not wish to add decoration to the tops before they cool. I used Banana Chips.

It was a good choice.
