Leave three perfectly overripe bananas at home with the non-banana eating BOY while I head out of town for the weekend???

OR turn them into a delicious travel friendly banana flavored snack???

I’m sure you can guess which option I chose!  Truth be told, I wasn’t planning on blogging or sharing this bread.  I had a few minutes in between packing, laundry, and catching up on the Big Bang Theory to throw something in the oven.  I needed an easy recipe and I had no eggs in the house.

I followed this recipe, substituting bananas for zucchini and using the flax egg and applesauce to make up for the lack of eggs,  mostly because this recipe comes together REALLY quick and also because I love a reason to use almond meal.

Like the recipe, I’m keeping this post quick.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Because I am all packed up and ready for my weekend away with my mom.

We are off to Door County for a long weekend of hiking, biking, drinking, and shopping.  And now, we have the perfect breakfast to take with us.  See you in a few days!

    I just saw these on line-the picture didn’t copy but the idea is there and the tote they showed was really cute-I didn’t know if you had ever seen them.

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend with your mom .

    Mile 22 Bags: Ever wonder what to do with your old race bibs? Do you put them in a shadow box and hang it on your wall? Do you stuff them away in a box? Maybe you quilt them together for a very uncomfortable blanket. Mile 22 Bags has come up with a great alternative: They take your bibs and turn them into bags, from gym duffel bags to messenger bags. Finally, a solution for that pile of bibs that just seems to get bigger and bigger. From $46.00
