Ever try to make a certain item, but you end up failing and in turn making something even better?
I feel like a scenario like this arises few and far between, but when it does, the glory of a something good coming out of a complete fail must be shared. So, my friends, I have something I’d like to share with you.
Yesterday morning, I entered my kitchen with one goal in mind: make a “cake batter” dip. You know, something with healthy, wholesome ingredients that tastes like sinful, sugary cake batter. I combined what the recipe told me to combine: banana, peanut butter, vanilla protein powder, maple syrup, etc., but all the while, I was a little doubtful the tastes of banana and peanut butter would somehow trick my tongue into thinking it was being lathered with cake batter.
That premonition was totally right. But, my friends, I’m not frowning about it. In fact, I’m rejoicing. Why? Because I ultimately concocted something that tasted just like banana bread before it goes into the oven.
I guess you can call it an edible banana bread batter. Super trendy, I know. This banana bread batter completely edible, as it doesn’t even include eggs! Yet, it has the same exact consistency.
Okay, I guess I better let you know how I concocted my spicy and sweet and edible banana bread dough…
Serving size: 2
Prep time: 5 minutes
1 small banana, mashed
1 tbs. creamy peanut butter
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1 tbs. maple syrup
1/2 tbs. vanilla extract (you can add more if you want a sweeter, more vanilla taste)
1 tbs. almond milk (or any other kind of milk)
Dash of cinnamon
1.) In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mash up the banana.
2.) Combine the mashed banana with all of the other ingredients.
3.) Mix the ingredients together. Don’t be afraid to taste along to way to see if you want to add more cinnamon or more vanilla extract.
*If the batter looks too liquid, add more protein powder. If it looks too solid, and more milk.
It’s as simple as that!
With this edible banana bread batter, you can…
1.) Make a sandwich
2.) Spread on toast in the morning in place of peanut butter, jelly, etc.
3.) Mix into greek yogurt
4.) Make French toast with (by coating the bread in the batter before placing it on the stovetop)
5.) Dip crackers in (along the lines of Animal Crackers)
