Could THIS the best banana bread ever?!

Oreo banana breadI thought I was absolutely done with finding a perfect banana bread recipe. Heck, I’m still in love with my healthy almond butter banana bread; it’s still my go-to. But with two overripe, semi-molding bananas and no almond butter in sight, I was forced to get creative and try something new.

So god I created Oreo banana bread.

Bringing a little Southern charm to the table.

Cornbread chili casseroleThe weather has definitely taken a turn as of late and it seems that summer has officially left the building. Gone are the days of cold noodle salads, raw everything, and drinks on the patio. The time has come to switch that up for soups, stews, and casseroles. Let’s welcome fall with a spicy cornbread chili casserole.

Savoury corn muffins.

Corn custard muffinsYes, I just went there.

I know, I know, I know that I am known for my cupcakes and baked goods, but who said you can’t make a savoury muffin!? This is fucking bomb. I ate two of these straight of the oven.

I present you with corn custard muffins.

Quick breads.

Pear and apple quick breadI read quite a bit of food blogs and a favourite that seems to pop up (atleast on the blogs that I read) would be quick breads. And honestly, I never really knew what that was. “What exactly is a quick bread?”, I thought. I saw savoury, sweet, ones filled with fruit, ones that you could pull apart, but it never occurred to me to actually look the term up. Til today:

“Quick bread is a type of bread which is leavened with leavening agents other than yeast. Quick breads include many cakes, brownies and cookies, as well as banana bread, beer bread, biscuits, cornbread, muffins, pancakes, scones, and soda bread.”

Motherfuck. Seriously? THAT’S IT?!?! I’ve made so many quick breads it’s not even funny! Geez. And this whole time I thought it was something way cooler than that… Way to burst my bubble, Wikipedia.

And to celebrate this new found (not really) knowledge, I have made you a pear, apple, flax, oat and almond quick bread.
