Banana Bread with Cashews & Navitas Naturals Review

FacebookPinterestStumbleUponGoogle+TumblrRedditShare

Navitas Banana Bread with Cashews (1)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.

Navitas Coconut Sugar Navitas Superfood 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. Check out the other great products over at Navitas Naturals for some recipe ideas!  FOR RECIPE & PHOTO GUIDE CLICK → → RECIPE & PHOTO GUIDE

Banana Muffins

Banana MuffinsBreakfast is my lazy meal. I don’t feel like cooking anything in the morning and I am most likely running out the door anyways, so who has time for stacks of pancakes, bacon, eggs, fruit salad, and all that good stuff that I would love to eat instead of a handful of grapes? The only solution I have found are muffins. Fresh muffins, baked up on a Sunday afternoon, ready for the week. Just pop one of the mellow muffins into the microwave for a good 10 seconds and bam! You have a warm ready to go breakfast, with the handful of grapes. The easiest muffin recipe I know is for Banana Muffins. One bowl and a spatula is all you need to prepare the batter and then bake in a muffin tin. Just wait until some overly ripe bananas fall into your lap and you are good to go. Overly ripe bananas are best to use over unripe, or ripe bananas because the banana flavor is much more pronounced and the mushy gushy banana lends to a moister muffin. (Moister is a weird word if you keep saying it over & over)

Delicious Rating: Yummy yummy in my tummy. Moist, doesn’t fall apart on you, filling breakfast, and just delicious. I love how you can individually wrap them in saran or foil and freeze them. Pop them out and let the muffin come to room temp in about 5 minutes and heat up in the microwave. They taste like they came fresh out of the oven. Easy recipe, perfect for breakfast.

Banana Crumb Muffins

The warm scent of baking bread fills a house so nicely. When my Dad would bake Banana Bread the spices would envelop you, making the mouth water! A good banana bread recipe is a must for any baker. It must be moist and spiced just right, all the while not losing any banana flavor. I love to taste the banana and I don’t mind banana ‘chunks’ in my banana breads!

My Dear Husband has an issue with Bananas that dates back to his childhood. So I didn’t want to make some loaves of Banana bread and finish them all on my own. I decided for mini-muffins; that way I can freeze them and eat them when I please.

Krithi’s Kitchen is hosting Healing Foods event for this month. The theme as you may have guessed is Bananas. This is delicious event was started by Cooking with Siri. I am excited to feature Bananas and be part of this food blog event.

Delicious Rating: Easy recipe to cook & bake. They taste delicious especially if you love banana bread. You can still use this recipe to bake a bread loaf or regular size muffins. I love mini-muffins but you do end up eating more than you think! I will add more crumb topping for next time. This recipe is a keeper.

Banana Split

After Lemons and Apples, Bananas place third in ‘My favorite dessert fruit’ category. Bananas are great in bread, pudding, cream pie, and of course split with ice cream. This is what I crave on a warm evening at home. While strolling through an amusement park or even when I pass a Dairy Queen. There are so many opinions and varieties of what constitutes as a Banana Split. But when it comes to my Banana Split, I like to keep it simple.

Delicious Rating: Anyone can make a banana split with this easy recipe and the results will definitely be Delicious!
