This Bread is Bananas


My nephew is bananas, too. While hanging out with him today (he’s two) he lifted up my shirt to expose my belly, then lifted his, and insisted on lying down belly to belly. This was totally bananas, but it felt comforting and great, until he told me I had a baby in my belly. What!?!

My cat is bananas. She tries everyday to climb into the entertainment center, but never does fit. Her favorite toy is an empty Coors Light box. Her name is Abba Zaba, and she is my only friend.

Black Friday is bananas. Especially after a day of merriment. Getting up early is so not on my agenda. Consider supporting a small business instead. We small business owners sure could use your support.

There are some ingredients in this bread that are a little bananas. Like millet and unsweetened chocolate. It’s hippy food fo sho, so don’t go sharing it with folks unless they are down with whole grains and infrequent showers.

Banana Bread Muffins with Millet and Chocolate
makes 12 extra large muffins or 1 loaf
recipe adapted from: Simply Recipes

3-4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened chocolate chips
1/2 cup millet

Preheat oven to 350. If making a loaf, butter the pan. If making muffins, line your muffin tins with baking cups.

In a large bowl mix the mashed bananas with the melted butter. I like to lightly mash the bananas so that there are some big chunks in the bread. Mix in the sugar, egg, vanilla, soda, and salt making sure it’s well combined. Mix in the flour until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips and millet.

If making a loaf, bake for 1 hour. If making muffins, bake for 25 minutes, until golden. Enjoy!
