Are you looking to turn your tea party into an epic tea party? How about just making your mornings a little more kickass? Well my friends, this is the recipe you have been looking for! Freshly ripened bananas mixed with coconut oil, flax seed, nancy's yogurt and a dash of pure awesome, This banana bread will satisfy those cravings and fill you up until your next epic meal. Packed with fiber, potassium, and probiotics this banana bread brings all the badass to the table! Pair it with a nice cup of coffee or just devour it as is, there is no wrong way to eat this banana bread. This recipe makes 5 mini loafs so you can share the epic-ness with your friends, neighbors, family, and even the random stranger passing by! 


Badass banana bread: 

4 ripened bananas, mashed. 

1 cup sugar ( I like coconut sugar but white works as well) 

2 eggs 

3/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled

1/3 cup organic yogurt ( I prefer Nancy's plain but use whatever you want. Vanilla would be a good one or even blueberry. Life is short, mix it up!)

2 cups whole wheat flour (white works too!)

1/4 cup ground flax seed

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt 

In a large mixing bowl mashed bananas and sugar together until almost smooth. Add your eggs, oil, and yogurt whisking together while adding. Next, grab that rubber spatula and fold your dry ingredients in. This is the time to get fancy with your spices, I always like to add some cinnamon (about 1 tsp.) and some nutmeg (about 1/4 tsp.) but don't be afraid to mix it up a bit, try it with ginger, or cardamom,or a fun extract like almond or rum, you can't go wrong with experimenting, that is how magical food moments happen so embrace the moment and put some badass in that batter! Now that you have added your culinary magic pour that delicious mix into some lightly greased and floured mini loaf pans. Place in your pre-heated oven at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Insert toothpick to see when done. Allow to cool and enjoy!
