“Maple” Pistachio and Almond Banana bread. 

    
I don’t know much about baking but, a standard “banana ” bread I can most certainly do! The hardest part is waiting for the bread to cool before I can cut into it and EAT it!! Instead of walnuts like traditional banana bread recipes,I decided to add some pistachios and almonds. Another thing where the recipe reads “add vanilla” I always substitute by adding a few teaspoons of “Maple” syrup. Vanilla is great but, that special something that adding the maple syrup in a dessert recipe, just brings any standard cake,cookie recipe to a whole different level. 

4 ripen bananas

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour 

1 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/2 cup chopped pistachios 

1/2 cup chopped almonds

1/3 cup melted butter

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1 egg beaten 

Cooking spray 

Mash ripen bananas in a large mixing bowl. Add melted butter and combine. Next add sugar, beaten egg and maple syrup. In another bowl add your “dry” ingredients ( flour, baking soda and salt) and sift. Add your dry ingredients to the wet and fully combine. Next, fold in you nuts. Spray your bread pan with non stick cooking spray and add your batter. Put into a pre heated 350 degree oven for about 1 hr. Once top is nicely golden, stick a toothpick into the middle. If the toothpick comes out clean than cool and set for 45 mins to an hr before cutting. 

Cooking time: approx 1 hr (it might take longer or less depending on your “own” ovens cooking time)

Serves: 8 to 10 peeps
