Hum dum de dum, hum de dum dum
I’m so rumbly in my tumbly
Time to munch an early luncheon
Time for something sweet -Winnie the Pooh
There is nothing like banana bread for a kid with a rumbly tummy and an urge for something sweet. That’s important, because we all know it’s harder for kids to learn when they are distracted by hunger. We think this is the absolute best banana bread you can make. It has all the healthy stuff: whole grain wheat and oat flour, farm fresh eggs, bananas, nuts and apple butter for that touch of something sweet. No white flour. No white sugar. And to keep things easy, no tricky yeast! Best of all, it makes lots of little loaves instead of one big one. Perfect for bake sales, sharing and after school snacks. But also perfect for an early luncheon at the kitchen table with a cup of frothy coffee! We are baking it in bulk for our Flour Baskets and Bake Sale this week, whipping up a few batches with our young friends at the neighborhood drop in center for homeless youth, and trying to save a few loaves for the after school snack plates of our kids at home too. Each loaf reminds us of one of the many kids we care about, and our desire to keep them healthy, happy and full of good things to eat. We hope the kids in your life love it too!
