The weather was very snowy yesterday and I was forced to cancel my boot camp class because the place I teach at was closing early. That meant I was stuck at home with Ava. This wasn’t a bad thing but I do get bored easily. I decided to try out a banana bread recipe. I rarely have 2 over-ripe bananas sitting around the house, but 1 is definitely more common. Do you agree?
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
- 3 tablespoons egg whites
- 1 medium ripe banana, mashed
- 1/4 cup fat-free milk
- 1/2 cup regular oats
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine brown sugar, banana, egg whites, oil & milk and mix well. Combine remaining dry ingredients. Add flour mixture into wet mixture until moist.
Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray, add the batter and bake for 25 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean. YUM!

We also baked banana bread over here the other day. While it was a healthier recipe, it’s almost gone. Whoops. I might have to limit the baking but it’s so nice to do when you’re stuck inside due to cold temperatures.
Good luck heading back to work! Are you going back full-time?

Our banana bread is gone too! it was delicious I might need to make another batch. I agree there isn’t much to do inside with this cold weather!
I am not going back full-time, but my schedule is different since I am a trainer/instructor. I have fridays off and I am working 3 days.. then teaching classes on 3 nights.

That seems like the perfect balance! I go back the first week of March and have mixed feelings. I love my job but hate the thought of being away from Allston. I’ll also have Fridays off though! I think that’ll make a huge difference. Good luck next week!!

I love my job so I am not dreading going back but it is going to be very hard this first week!!
Having Fridays off will be awesome for you Especially when it gets warmer and we can do more outside it will be nice to have a longer weekend!!
