I’ve been all about healthy quick breads lately. Because if you’re like me and you want to bake and eat baked goods all the time, you need to compromise sometimes on time and goodness. This recipe is perfect. A new favorite. Its pretty good for you, pretty special, pretty delicious, and pretty quick to make.
This is the kind of bread you can eat in the morning with coffee and feel totally light on your feet and nourished. It is a week day kind of bread, something to stuff in your very cute lunch box if you have such a thing. Putting it together only takes 15 minutes with 30 minutes in the oven. It is moist, filled with banana goodness and subtle hints of matcha tea and ginger. I am building quite the repertoire of healthy quick breads out of my kitchen experiments, so I will share some more over the next few weeks. Holiday cooking/baking is nearing. so excited! Enjoy.
