Spiced Banana Sharing Bread

I made two. One for enjoying and one for sharing. What if I looked at all my life like this?!? There is always someone who needs. A neighbor... a dear one...you notice it more once you take a moment. Whether it comes to the extreme of those who lost everything in a recent storm or hurricane, fire or flood. Or maybe it is someone you know that is going without. Without health care, medicine, food, or daily needs. Or maybe it is someone you know who lost someone close to them, or a baby, or the list can go on and on when it comes to loss and grief. The moment I had today thinking of all those in my own arms length going through hard things- and thinking of my own anxious heart- we are all in this together. We can do these hard things together. And sometimes it starts with sharing a loaf of bread.
So this bread officially is being called 'sharing bread' :) Because you can make this recipe and easily pour it into 2 pans. One for you... And one for your neighbor...Or a friend. It is an easy loaf to whip up on the whim if you got a mountain of ripened bananas that need either to get frozen or baked. It is spiced and topped with love and shared with even more love. You can't go wrong with a warm banana bread in my opinion ;)
We're all going through hard things, so let's do this together. It is always so easy to focus on your own hard things, but if we practice sharing you can start to see beyond your own weary heart and share in an other's weary heart. And why not share with some bread to, amiright?!? Happy baking friends and also...happy sharing! xoxo
Spiced Banana Sharing Bread Recipe
{gluten, dairy, egg, seed, nut and soy-free}

1 cup of mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup of date paste puree
2/3 cup of plant based milk (I used coconut milk beverage)
1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup of maple syrup
1/3 cup of avocado oil
2 TB of molasses
2/3 cup of coconut palm sugar
1 ts. of ground cinnamon
1 ts. of ground nutmeg
1 ts. of ground ginger
1 1/4 cup of finely ground certified GF oat flour
1/2 cup of white rice flour
1/3 cup of tapioca flour
1/4 cup of potato starch
1/4 cup of coconut flour
2 ts. of baking powder
1 ts. of baking soda
1 ts. of sea salt

1/2 cup of my Cinnamon Crunch Granola Cereal

In a large mixing bowl, mashed up the ripened bananas and then add all the rest of the wet ingredients. Then fold in the dry ingredients and whisk together well. Pour half the batter into a parchment lined bread pan, and then pour the rest into pan #2. Cheap foil baking pans are a great one to use with this recipe because you can easily wrap up and share. You can even wash out these pans and reuse again too. I topped my loaves with some of my Cinnamon Crunch Granola Cereal as a topping and then baked in a 350 degree oven for 50 minutes on a middle shelf. 

Let cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting into or wrapping up for best results. This loaf is a warming and comforting treat or gift as we transition into the fall months. 

And now I get to share ;) this recipe with you :) Hope you enjoy, bake, and share...
Much love and light to you as always, xoxo
