A couple of times a month I bake up mini bread loaves for some of my older friends. They may be widowed, divorced, or living the single life but all these women love baked goods. This week I baked up some cute little Banana breads. This easy recipe is my go to banana bread recipe. Whenever I have a bunch of bananas I didn’t get a chance to eat, I know where they are headed, straight to a bread mixing bowl! This banana bread recipe is special because I used some products from Navitas Naturals. They have a large array of organic superfoods that are great to add in and/or replace other ingredients in almost every recipe you may cook up. The great people over at Navitas Naturals sent me some of their products and I absolutely loved them. For this recipe I used the Coconut Palm Sugar in replace of white granulated sugar. I also topped the bread with Superfood+ Maca Cashews.
Delicious Rating: The Coconut Palm Sugar is absolutely amazing. It is a great replacement for cane sugar and brings another layer of flavor to whatever it is your cooking. In this case, the banana bread was not overly sweet but had a caramel overtone, almost like molasses. It is low-glycemic, so a perfect choice for those needing to eat from a low-glycemic index. I topped the breads with chopped Maca Cashews. The cashews have a touch of maple syrup on them that give them a slight sweetness. It is the perfect combination! The bread is soft and moist, full of flavor. The cashews add texture and a creaminess that is a great complement to the bananas.
