Banana Berry Medley Bread

Yesterday I whipped up some very tasty & healthy breakfast bread for us. It really was entirely my own creation, but has the same obvious ingredients found in all recipes. I find that it is easy to mix and match your own recipe, especially with baking breads and cookies, because you just need the same basic ingredients. These would be a flour base, a liquid, sweetener, and something to make the whole thing rise a little bit.

Put all those ingredients together in one bowl (it’s a Tuesday, I don’t believe in dishes), and you have a scrumptious and healthful treat for the morning.

2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. oats
1 c. yogurt, I prefer greek or non-fat
2 large bananas, mashed
2 tbsp. acai syrup or honey
2 tbsp.  canola oil
1 c. frozen (de-frosted) or fresh berries, I used strawberries and blueberries

Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then add wet ingredients and stir. Be careful not to over-stir as it will make the dough rubbery.  It’s quicker and easier to mix the ingredients by hand. The nice thing about this recipe is that you don’t use processed white sugar to sweeten. The combination of berries and acai syrup or honey really do the trick!

As you can see, I really really enjoyed it with some strawberry jam!
