Hazelnut Banana Bread


2013/01/21 by nikkiledford

Sometimes I feel like I’m on a life-long pursuit to make delicious baked goods with as little sweetener as possible. Sometimes it doesn’t work out too great. Baked goods should be somewhat sweet, this I’ve learned… over and over again.

So I was pretty stoked when I made this lil’ guy the other day. Granted, it has a lot of banana in it, which is sweet… but it’s banana bread. If there was ever a time to go a little bananas, now would be it.

This loaf comes out delightfully moist!

Enjoy for breakfast or as a special treat πŸ™‚

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
