I have 2 young ladies (ages 11 and 12) who visit me on Wednesdays. We always take a walk, have lunch, and do an art project. I do my best to get them to eat more healthy when they visit me and include something they can help prepare. When feeding children for a special visit, you must include a treat for the day. This week's treat and kid friendly recipe was Rob's banana bread.
Something went wrong in the cooking because the bread did not rise. Something went right in the tasting because they asked to take the left overs home.

1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup 10 grain flour 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon 5 tbsp margarine 1/2 cup brown sugar 3 ripe bananas, mashed 1/2 cup chopped pecans
I had some over ripe bananas so it was bread time. The original recipe I started with called for 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour but I wanted more whole grain so I added the Bob's Red Mill 10 grain I had on hand. They tell you not to replace more than a 1/2 cup so that's what I did. Oh course you can use any nuts you like. It turned out very good and it is all gone!
I've found without question that the best way to lead others to a more plant-based diet is by example - to lead with your fork, not your mouth. ~Bernie Wilke
