Alright guys, if you don’t already know, Jazzy Things is just about the coolest chick of the inter-webs. I started following her Instagram page the day I realized I could get fitness and nutrition info on my favorite social media. She posts websites, workouts, selfies, waffles, and so much more, I gotta say, I’m pretty pissed she moved to California as I moved out.
I’m sharing with you guys today her clean banana bread recipe she recently posted. I saw the post and immediately thought of those browning bananas wasting away in my fruit bowl (there always seem to be brown bananas around–where do they all come from? I can’t keep up with my banana purchasing habits).
So please, look her up, follow her, find her on Facebook, buy her e-books. You’ll be doing yourself a favor!
As you will learn, I have a serious sweet tooth, so I am constantly searching for guilt-free treats. Combine that with my curiosity for new flavors and techniques, and you get stuff like this! I found this recipe on one of my favorite healthy recipe sites paleomg.com
This was my first time working with most of these ingredients, so I did my research careful to learn exactly which part of the lavender plant to use, and how to handle a true vanilla bean.
Another thing to note in this recipe is how easy it is to make your own nut meals/flours. Here we use cashews for their sweet but still robust flavor.
I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I was hesitant about my proportions, nervous about all of the new ingredients, and a little intimidated (still) by clean baking in general, but it turned out to have an incredibly delicate flavor and rich texture that perfectly solved my sweet craving.
So, without further ado…
