banana bread

Last week I found myself with two very ripe bananas. I thought, "Banana bread. Perfect."

Not so fast. I was out of eggs. So I googled "banana bread no eggs" and found a recipe. I had no clue how it would turn out, but I tried it. And it worked!

If I made it again, I would do without the chocolate chips. I love the banana/chocolate flavor combo, but it makes them just a little too rich.

Here's the recipe (halved)

1/3 c butter
2/3c sugar
1c flour
2/3 tsp baking soda
2/3 tsp salt
1 1/2 ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 c choc chips

Preheat to 325.
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla. Add other dry ingredients. Stir in bananas and choc chips.
Bake about 25 mins.

I also added some chopped walnuts, and they were great.

I had half a banana left, so I whipped up a banana frosting. 

I just added the banana, powdered sugar and butter until the consistency was right. It tastes much better than it looks so I'll spare you that picture.

I saved a few without icing to eat for breakfast, and the rest for dessert. These were a little different than a traditional banana bread, and really crumbly, but very delish. I was happy.

Don't you love the mini heart pan? Target a few years back.

Linking up with I Heart Faces' desserts challenge.
