Round 2 Recipes Take I

As in the words of Sandra Lee, host of Food Network’s Semi-Homemade Cooking and Sandra’s Money Saving Meals, I have created two Round 2 Recipes that put a tasty meal on the table in no time. 

First up, Berry Banana Bread Bake.  The reason this is a Round 2 Recipe is that the recipe uses bread that was intitially intended for use in sandwiches and the like.  But after a couple days, my loaf of Whole Foods Seeded Wheat Bread began to be a little harder than I could chew (AKA stale). 

You might remember seeing it in these two delights:

Italian Turkey Sausage Po’Boy

Open-faced sandwich

And a peanut butter and plum snack-size sammie.

Juicy Plum + Creamy Almond Butter = 🙂

Using that same stale chewy bread, I created the Berry Banana Bread Bake.

Berry Banana Bread Bake + Honey Drizzles

Berry Banana Bread Bake Recipe

1 Stale Loaf of Seeded Wheat Bread (whatever crusty bread loaf you have on hand)

1 c unsweetened apple sauce

1/2 c water

2 tblsp of honey (more if desired)

1 tsp of vanilla extract

1 tsp of cinnamon

2 ripe bananas

2 ripe plums sliced

1 handful of blackberries

1/2 c frozen, rinsed blueberries

Directions: Preheat oven to 350*.  Spray an 8 x 8 glass pan with nonstick spray.  In a large mixing bowl, tear bread into small pieces.  Add bananas.  Then add apple sauce and next 4 ingredients.  Use potato masher to mash and mix all ingredients until well combined.  Lastly, fold in plums, blackberries, and blueberries using a spatula.   Pour mixture into pan and bake for 60-70 minutes until knife inserted comes out clean.  Optional:  Once cooled and plated drizzle bread bake with honey or syrup and enjoy!

Tear bread into pieces.

Add ingredients.

Don't forget the blueberries.

Enjoy this as a healthified breakfast treat or afternoon snack!
