Banana Bread – with or without the baby

In Breakfast, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

One of my favorite recipes from Feed the Belly is the Baby on Board Banana Bread. It’s a moist, delicious loaf that’s chock full of delicious ingredients. It also has more fiber and less sugar than most banana bread recipes. Even though I’m no longer pregnant (or planning to get pregnant ever again), I find myself going back to this recipe over and over again. Why? I always seem to have mushy bananas on hand, plus this recipe lends itself to multiple variations. Sometimes I add 1/4 cup of chocolate chips or coconut flakes, and sometimes I use chia seeds instead of the flax. Any way you make it, it’s darn good, and perfect for a rainy day.

Heartbreaker Dark Chocolate Cookies!

In Desserts, Recipes by Frances Largeman Roth

Yes, I’m a huge Pat Benatar fan. I’m also a big fan of crispy dark chocolate cookies, especially when they’re filled with amazing things like almond butter or ice cream. These shortbread cookies are excellent on their own with a cup of tea or coffee, and even more fun dressed up as sandwich cookies.
