Bananaberry Breadlet

The other day, I was in the mood for banana bread, but wanted it without the heaviness of a loaf and the convenience that I could grab and go in the mornings (because taking the time to stop and cut a slice of bread takes way too long, ha). Presenting...


A glorious warm bit of bread baked into handheld on-the-go size.

Bananaberry Breadlet
Perfect for on-the-go, this warm, gooey snack is half the size of a regular muffin and is dense as it is derived from a bread recipe.
makes 23 (not 24) breadlets

dry ingredients (in one bowl, combine:)
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
wet ingredients (in a second bowl, combine:)
3 ripe bananas, mashed
3 TB melted butter/margarine
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup blackberries, sliced in half (1/2 cup or so)

step one:
preheat oven to 350. spray or line 23 muffin tins.
the batter
combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and stir. then combine wet ingredients in a large bowl and stir. 

step two: 
pour dry ingredients into the large bowl, and stir all together. using a tablespoon (the kind you eat with), scoop out 2 spoonfuls for each cup, so the muffin cups are 1/2 full of batter.

step three:
bake breadlets for 10 minutes, making sure they are slightly firm (not jiggly) but not overly brown. cool on rack. eat.

**since there is a bunch of banana and blackberry happiness in them, i would stick them in the fridge for storage. i put them in sandwich bags or to-go containers to grab in a hurry. enjoy!
look at that gooey, banana-y goodness
So there you have it, the breadlet. I'm finding it's a nice treat before/after a workout, too.

Happy eating!
