|We got some fun gifts from Hawaii this week!|
My daughter came back from Hawaii and brought my hubs and I some yummy Macadamia nuts! I love them in cookies and stuff. So I wanted to use them in some kind of muffin or bread. Doesn’t this look good? Well it IS!
|Banana Macadamia Nut Bread….it’s delicious!|
I looked around the kitchen and I had some bananas, some were overripe too! So this is what I came up with. I mixed up a couple of recipes I liked because I wanted this to be rich and dense, fruity bread.
|Most of my bananas looked worse than these, but those dark, spotty ones make the best banana bread! Don’t throw them out!|
I hate it when my banana bread is dry. With the added applesauce and all that banana and egg it makes it really rich and yummy. I did NOT take a picture of my yucky brown bananas. But it is a GREAT way to use them up.
So I made this yummy Banana Macadamia Nut Bread with the Mouna Loa Macadamia Nuts!
|Ingredients are all in my pantry, that’s the kind of recipe I love…..an EASY ONE!!|
|Here I added walnuts AND Macadamia Nuts from Hawaii to the mix….we love nutty breads!|
RECIPE FOR BANANA-MACADAMIA NUT BREAD
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Mix up dry ingredients and set aside. Then in a mixing bowl, add wet ingredients scraping sides. Then add dry mixture. Finally add nuts. (You can add 3/4 cup chocolate chips to the mix for a fun variation). Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes. It is done when top is browned and a few cracks show in the middle.
It was DEEElish. My son Devin is home for a visit from Chicago and he and Caitlin liked it a lot. Well, we liked holding little baby Lena a LOT!
|Here is Little Miss Lena! She smiles non-stop 24/7|
|We took her to Texas Roadhouse for dinner tonight and she sat smiling for over an hour in the high chair.
What more could you ask of a 6 month old? Not a thing!
|These 2 girls love their Uncle Devin a LOT! He plays chase through the house with them.|
|Of course they had to do a silly picture too!|
