Oil Free Avocado Banana Bread

In the past two weeks, I’ve been involved in two weddings.

I also have a two week old and  two year old…

Between my lack of sleep at night and the two busy weekends we’ve had, I’ve become somewhat delirious.

I find myself breastfeeding and watching re-runs of Snookie and JWOW at 3 in the morning while eating yogurt pretzels and drinking almond milk.

I’ve reached an all time high my friends.

But despite the craziness, I couldn’t be happier to see this beautiful face in the wee hours of the morning!

I’m happy to say that this week I am veggin’ out at my moms while I catch up on some sleep, and she catches up on feeding Boo a cookies and ice cream.

I’ve also scheduled a hair appointment which I am so excited about!

I’m considering the short bleach blonde Mylie Cyrus look…What ya think?

(See what I mean…Delirious)

Either way, there is one thing that sort of keeps me sane at the moment and that’s eating carbs.

Carbs with chocolate chips that is…

Trust me. It works miracles.

Oil Free Avocado Banana Bread

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c. spelt flour, WW Pastry flour, etc…

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

dash of salt

1 egg

1/3 generous cup mashed avocado (1 medium avo)

1 generous cup mashed ripe banana (2-3 bananas)

1/3 c. peanut butter/other nut butter

1/3 c. agave, maple syrup, or honey

1 TB. vanilla

1/2 c. chocolate chips

Directions:

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. (Flour, B.P., B.S., Salt, spices)

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients until well combined. Mix wet and dry until incorporated, then fold in chocolate chips.

3. Bake in a preheated oven in a bread pan at 350 for 40-45 minutes.

Hopefully this bread can work its magic and hold Boo over for at least an hour so she can stop asking Grandma for cookies…

That is unless I finish off the loaf early this morning. It might take a miracle for that…
