If I ever become pregnant I seriously worry for my husband. I’m not even close to being pregnant and I get cravings like a mad woman!!
Randomly I’ll get a whiff of maple syrup and NEED TO HAVE waffles … sometimes is cheese danishes … other times its peanut butter cookies … other times doughnuts … sometimes it’s salad ( not very often, but it happens …) this time it was banana bread.
Banana bread studded with huge chocolate chunks – dark chocolate chunks. Not too sweet … so I can justify it as breakfast, but also sweet enough that I can have it as an afternoon snack over coffee.
That’s where this fine lookin loaf came from : Dark chocolate chunk kefir Oatmeal Banana bread.
I’ve never actually baked with kefir before, I didn’t know what to expect – I hoped that it would be acidic like buttermilk, but with a lower fat content. The result was perfect, a dense banana bread, that was loaded with chocolate chunks. Sweet – but not overly sweet … and ( note: I’m about to say the “M” word ) Moist … I can feel my teeth hurting from just reading that word.
Make the bread ladies and germs, you totes-ma-goats need this bread. Ahhh and then make this banana foster with it – you’re welcome!! And now … I need that banana foster.
