Plantain Banana Peanut Butter Bread

bananabread1

I asked one of my friends to pick up bananas at the store so we can bake some banana bread.
She came back with about 10 plantains.
I hysterically laughed.
She honestly believed she bought bananas.
We fell to the floor laughing for about 10 minutes.
Once that was done, we questioned what the heck we were going to do with all of these plantains?!
Well, here we go!
This is where Plantain Banana Peanut Butter Bread was born!
So, just to clear the air… I haven’t prepared plantains in about 15 years!
So this was a challenge.
A challenge I was ready to take because I always LOVE a good challenge.
This bread is amazing.

Ingredients:
2 ripe plantains, yellow with black spots
2 very ripe bananas
1 cup PB2 powder
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup cassava flour
3 T melted coconut oil
2 Tbsp honey (if vegan, use maple syrup)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda

Recipe Serves: 16
I am such a brownie lover, but have not had a brownie in, I want to say, years!
I could never find a good, healthy one that is worth eating.
Well, I thought, why not make my own brownies and sub some ingredients?!
Voila!

I am always asked for healthy, nutritious recipes that parents can make for their kids.
Well, here is one!
This recipe is so delicious and hides the fact that it is made of beans, which is high in protein and fiber.
Have you tried to get your kids to beans, and failed?
If your kids do eat beans, you are lucky!
I know many picky eater adults, and I had some of them try this recipe out.
They had no idea there were beans in it!
I told them afterwards, and they were utterly shocked.
I am so stoked to share this recipe with all of you!

A delicious, nutritious, healthy dessert or snack!

I received so much great feedback on these fun treats!
I originally just made these for fun.
Actually, everything I make is for fun!
These were prepped and made for a special fundraiser event to help raise money for the Lungevity Foundation.
A couple of years ago, we lost a dear friend to Lung Cancer.
A healthy happy woman, who was not a smoker.
She simply was an amazing individual.
She taught me to be grateful and patient.
She holds a special place in my heart, always.
I miss our 5:30am talk sessions before class.
She was purely beautiful inside and out.

Sesame Almond Butter Cookies

I love creating healthy treats that do not sacrifice the flavor.
I find using whole ingredients, without the preservatives, food colorings, added sugars, and other refined and processed ingredients, makes the final recipe taste that much more amazing and clean.
I am so much more appreciative of homemade creations.
Homemade creations come right from the heart, with purpose.
I hope all of you truly enjoy these healthy cookies!
I chose sesame seeds for a reason.
Other than I thought it would pair well with almond butter!
