The 'Chocolate Covered Kate' blog recently published a recipe for a fruity take on homemade gingerbread. Gingerbread is a classic holiday dessert that can be enjoyed in many different ways. This simple recipe provides a healthy and delicious way to enjoy the festive treat.
The hybrid recipe combines homemade gingerbread with a classic banana loaf. To make the sweet bread, the recipe involves combining mashed bananas with milk, vanilla, flour and molasses. The addition of blackstrap molasses sweetens the batter, while also delivering a healthy dose of calcium and iron. Once the banana bread batter is prepared, the recipe calls for the addition of warm spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. Raisins and walnuts can also be added for additional texture.
The end result is a delicious holiday treat that is perfect for breakfast or dessert.
