This bread is variation of the banana bread. It is a great dish to make during weekend to enjoy with the family and friends (and of course with your relatives too!).
We make Banana Carrot Bread whenever we have family gathering and also we make it sometimes to take it to work. We also make zucchini bread with fairly similar approach, I will share that recipe some other time. Spring is around the corner and fresh berries should start coming in. I have been thinking about making a berry bread. It should turn out good with colorful blend of fruits.
This recipe is not too sweet (recipe uses less sugar) and does not fill you up. It is great with tea, coffee or have it as a desert. I like it so much, I even have it as a snack.
Bananas are rich in potassium which is good for blood pressure, they are also good for improving cramps in legs. Carrots are rich in potassium, beta carotene and vitamin A.
This bread is packed with protein and has no cholesterol when made with egg whites. The great taste of this desert you could enjoy any time of the day.
Sometimes it just so happens, we end with couple of overripe bananas, I am sure you may have same situation too. Here is the easy way to make good use of those bananas.
