We took are baby girl, Carlee, in for allergy testing last week. Ever since she was a few months old, she has had eczema. It is an awful thing to have! Anyway, back to the testing. I won't even go into how bad it was for Carlee and for Kami and I to watch her go through it!! She is such a good little girl!! We found out that she is highly allergic to eggs (white and yolk), peanuts, weeds, cats, and tobacco. She was mildly allergic to a few other things but the doctor said that we shouldn't worry too much with them.
Eggless Banana Bread
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
3 large bananas
1/2 cup applesauce
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
~Mix the first five (dry) ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
~In a separate bowl, mash bananas well.
~Stir in the butter, vanilla and applesauce into the bananas.
~Add the banana mixture into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients.
~Mix gently by hand, just enough to form a thick, clumpy batter. If the mixture seems too dry, add more mashed bananas or applesauce to adjust the consistency.
~Fold in chocolate chips and/or walnuts, if using.
~Pour batter into greased loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes or until the bread is a deep golden brown and a knife inserted comes out clean.
