Banana Nut Cranberry Bread

Today’s recipe is a fairly simple banana nut bread with the wonderful addition of dried cranberries. I will add dried cranberries to pretty much anything including but not limited to: salads, oatmeal, cereal, muffins, yogurt, and ice cream. See my Nutella Craisin Muffin recipe..which reminds me that I should make that again really soon.

Banana Nut Cranberry Bread: 1 banana, 1 c. flour, 1 c. cane sugar, crushed walnuts, 1/2 c. dried cranberries, 1 tblsp. baking powder, dash of salt, 1 egg, 1/2 c. soy milk, 2 tblsp. melted butter

Preheat oven to 375. Mix all the dry ingredients together: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, dried cranberries, and walnuts. In another bowl mix the egg, melted butter, soymilk, and smashed banana together.

Put both mixtures together in one bowl and mix well. Then, add the batter to a greased bread pan and bake for 45-60 min or until crust is golden brown.

It was delicious, the sweetness of the banana and cranberry almost made it a dessert 🙂

In unrelated news, I got an Edible Arrangement for V-day; and with all this sweet fruit in my life, I am on cloud nine!
