Banana Bread with Cacao Nibs & Cranberries
I know you are going to love this banana bread recipe because it's such a moist, hearty, and healthy loaf of bread.
I meant to post this recipe yesterday, but through a series of unfortunate events, the building I live in and the surrounding area lost power and water for almost 24 hours. We decided to stay somewhere else last night and I went back to our apartment to pack some bags of clothes and grab toiletries. It was really dark and I was fumbling around with a few tea lights in my hands, trying to find everything.
When I met up with my husband later I was chronicling all my woes about how hard it was to see and how I dripped wax everywhere - he stared at me for about 30 seconds and said, "Why didn't you use the super powerful flashlight you have?" I replied (rather rudely) that we don't have any flashlights (side note: we have two, apparently!), and he said, "Of course you have one, on your phone!"
I felt like such a dummy - I was running around with tealights and completely forgot about my very bright iPhone flashlight. Womp Womp. Clearly, you do not want to hang out with me in an emergency. If/when the zombie apocalypse goes down, you better hope I have banana bread with me, because that's all I'm bringing to the table!
That being said, you could do a lot worse than this banana bread in a zombie apocalypse.
What I love about this bread is just how moist it is. (side note: I looked for synonyms for the word moist...I know some people hate it, but the best one I could find was "not dry") It's also got a nice hint of chocolate with the cacao nibs and extra sweetness from the dried cranberries. It's a great breakfast, snack, or dessert. Basically, what I'm saying is I had three pieces of this bread yesterday.
