Morning ‘Glory” Bread

I actually have this great mutual arrangement worked out.  A friend of mine has a subscription to Vegetarian Times, even though she isn’t a Vegetarian and doesn’t cook.  I’m not sure exactly how she ended up with a subscription, but I can’t complain, because every month her copy shows up, she quickly flips through it, and then hands it off to me…to keep.  This morning there was a recipe in there called “Morning Glory Loaf” which didn’t look bad, although I didn’t exactly have all the ingredients called for, and it had a bit more sugar and white flour then I want involved in my breakfast.   I decided to rework things a little, so it can be a breakfast that really fuels you through the morning, and this is what I came up with…


Also included, my recipe…it was a bit crumbly when warm, so watch out there, but otherwise good…and it did fuel me through my mid-morning workout, so I was pretty pleased with that.

1 cup unbleached white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup canola oil
1 banana, peeled and mashed
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup raisins

1. Pre-heat oven to 350F. Coat a 9 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
2. Start by mashing the banana in the bottom of a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients one by one starting with the juice until everything is combined. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake 50 minutes.
3. Cool in pan for five minutes, and then on a wire rack. Serve warm with a bit of earth balance.

These would work great as muffins too, I’m just more of a “loaf” person I suppose.
