I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Berry Oat Banana Loaf

Flourless and gluten-free and ready to satisfy your sweet tooth! You could even leave out the brown sugar as the bananas and berries make it sweet enough for some. I like it just that much sweeter though!

3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups oats
1/2 cup butter
3 eggs
1/4 cup brown sugar (optional)
1  1/2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup dried blueberries and cranberries

First off you want to re-hydrate the berries. So pour a little water on them, just enough to cover, and set aside for 15 or 20 minutes.

Take half the oats and whirl in a blender. Stir this oat flour into the remaining whole oats.

Beat butter then add 1/3 of the banana, 1 egg and 1/3 of the oats. Repeat, repeat until the bananas, eggs and oats are well combined with the butter.

Add the brown sugar (if using), baking powder, cinnamon and vanilla. Mix well. Drain the berries and fold them into the batter.

Grease and flour a 9 X 5" loaf pan, pour the batter in and sprinkle some oats on top if you like.

Bake at 350 F for 45-50 minutes

Cool at least 20 minutes on rack before turning out to cool completely.
