Blueberry-Banana Bread … mmm

I love love love the blog Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. The author not only creates delightful recipes, but she takes amazing photos of the finished products. Fantastic.

Last night I made her Blueberry-Banana Bread recipe, and I think it turned out pretty well. This is the kind of cooking I’m trying to do more of lately—using simple, wholesome ingredients. I encourage you to go take a look at the recipe, which I won’t reproduce here, and try it out yourself. It was incredibly easy.

I will say that I used whole wheat flour, which made the bread very hearty. I might suggest upping the amount of banana and blueberry if you’d like something a little more flavorful and dessert-like. I really enjoyed using agave nectar for the first time, which lends a sweetness that’s not cloying or too powerful like refined sugar can be.

And here are my not-so-great photos of my finished product!
