I woke up this morning with plans to be at my mother’s beck and call since she had some errands to run and needed an escort. I did not expect to wake up to a child with a fever and vomiting. What’s a girl to do when stuck at home on a snowy day with an ill child? I asked myself that same question and then I saw it…a bag of overripe bananas on my counter. What’s a girl to do…bake!
I told my husband I’d make some banana bread but I still have one loaf in my freezer from the last time I had a bag of overripe bananas on my counter. I wanted to find something different so I googled ‘ripe bananas vegan’ and found this…
Ok, ok…I made another banana bread. I made two actually. What can I say, I’m a creature of habit…and familiarity…and I really like banana bread. 🙂
This is a different banana bread then any I’ve made before though (justification for making yet another one)…it’s chocolate marbled!
I figured I should make two loaves since I have a full bag of bananas and it’s not hard for a family of 5 to eat an entire loaf in one day. I didn’t want to make two chocolate marbled loaves though (my whole family doesn’t share my desire for chocolate…more for me!). So, I replaced the 3 Tbsp of cocoa powder in the linked recipe with 2 Tbsp of peanut butter. Oh yeah baby!!
After all the baking (and laundry), I put my son’s megablock monster truck together. He’s been begging for someone to do it and he was home sick afterall. I am mom of the day. Unfortunately, he probably won’t remember how awesome I am tomorrow when he wants something else. I will just bask in the glory of today’s victories (and banana bread).
Happy snow day!
