I had two very ripe bananas to use up and some frozen fruit in the freezer so I decided to bake a loaf of berry banana bread. I was lucky enough to be sent a couple more bottles of Xagave and decided to use it instead of sugar. The bread took a while to cook but it turned out moist, delicious, and jam-packed with berries. The kids and my husband really loved this bread.
Berry Banana Bread:
- 2/3 cup Xagave
- 2 very ripe, mashed bananas
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup of frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup frozen blackberries
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
How to Make Berry Banana Bread
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Coat a 9×5 loaf pan with cooking spray.
Using a mixer, combine the Xagave, bananas, butter, milk, vanilla, and eggs.
In a separate bowl, carefully mix the baking soda, salt, and whole wheat flour together.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Add most of the frozen berries and mix quickly and carefully.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan then top with the remaining berries and bake for 60-70 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve plain or slathered in butter. Enjoy.
