This blog will be written by a stay at home mom/student. I am trying to enjoy every minute of life I get and raise my children to be happy with what we have been given. Anything written here will be by me, for my well being and piece of mind. I want to open other peoples eyes, and let them see that we can make it on less.

Aunt Jen's (should be famous) Banana Bread.

What you will need:
1/2 stick unsalted butter softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites (if it's for my family I just use 1 whole egg)
2 bananas mashed
3/4 cup white flour sifted
1/4 cupwhole wheat flour sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/4 cup raisins (I have also used dried cherries)
3 Tablespoons of oatmeal
2 Tablespoons of proteien powder (I omit this)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, mix all ingredients and pour in a buttered loaf pan. Spinkle the top with more oats and slivered almonds(I use pecans).
Bake for 45-50 minutes.

Rosemary's variation is to omit the butter and use 4 Tablespoons of olive oil. She also leaves out the bananas and adds 1 cup of pumpkin.

This is the best pumpkin and banana bread I have ever eaten and super easy to make. Love this with coffee for breakfast or a after school snack for the kids!
