Nesquick Brownies

I am not sure what prompted me to make Nesquik brownies. My son bought it a while back, he enjoys Nesquick. I was first thinking hot chocolate brownies, then I saw the Nesquick sitting on the shelf and thought, why not. Sure enough, Pinterest comes through and there is a recipe. The Pinterest link can be found here.

I followed the recipe found on Southern Made Simple blog post, but I did use only 1 cup of Nesquick and used 1/2 cup of baking cocoa.

I will likely try this recipe using Hot Chocolate. I will let you know how that turns out.

Banana Date Nut Bars

 I wanted to make a vegan version of my favorite banana bar recipe that is in the vintage Betty Crocker Cookie Book. The bar does have a subtle banana flavor that I always loved.

I made these bars vegan, but you can also use sugar and eggs. I also used all whole wheat flour, you can use all purpose flour.

To make these I used:
1 cup mashed banana (2-3 bananas)
1/4 cup shortening (you could use butter)
1 cup sugar or sugar substitute
2 flax seed eggs (2 T ground flax seed, 1/4 cup water, set for 15 minutes) or 2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour or all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup chopped nuts

Combine banana, shortening, sugar, flax seed egg, and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Fold in dates and nuts. Spread in greased jelly roll pan. Bake 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until done.

Mini Banana Bread Loaf

My son wanted some banana bread, but I did not want to make a whole loaf. So I made a mini loaf of bread. I took and existing recipe and cut the recipe down to fit my mini loaf pan. I took a slice to make sure it was tasty. My son took the remaining loaf and finished it off. Guess he liked it.

Overall I took an existing recipe and used 1/3 of the recipe. Now granted some measurements are difficult to cut into a third. So I did some liberties and I am glad that the recipe did turn out. After all, my son did eat the entire loaf :). 

Here is how I made my mini banana bread loaf:
2/3 flour
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon basking soda
1 mashed banana
1 tablespoon milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 egg
2 tablespoons chopped nuts

Combine dry ingredients.  Set aside. Combine, banana, milk, butter, and egg. Add the dry ingredients. Fold in chopped nuts. Put batter in mini loaf pan. Bake at 350 degree F. for about 35 minutes or until done.
