Today we will be putting a new twist on an old classic, banana bread! Not only will we be adding walnuts and chocolate chips, but this banana bread will also be getting you high! I like to call this recipe, Cross-Eyed Monkey bread. To start baking this delicious bread, we will need the following.
- 1 cup sugar (1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 granulated)
- 1/2 cup cannabutter
- 1 eggs
- 3 bananas
- 1 tsp milk
- 1/3 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 cup flower (1/2 cup wheat 1-1/2 cup white)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
To start, preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease up a 9×5 bread pan. Grab a bowl which we will be using to cream together the 1/2 cup of cannabutter and the 1 cup of sugar using an egg beater. Once you have the mixture creamed together well, we will be adding each egg, one at a time. Be sure to keep scraping down the edge of the bowl so the mixture does not get stuck to the sides and mix well. We want the mix to be light and fluffy.
Set aside the mixture with the cannabutter and grab another bowl. Add the bananas and then mash them. Then add the teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of milk.
Set aside the banana mixture (yes, we do need 3 bowls for this one) and we’ll get started on the dry ingredients. Add the 2 cups of flower, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon and finally the 1 tablespoon of salt. Whisk the ingredients together thoroughly.
Now, we are going to combine all the bowls of ingredients together! No particular order but I suggest doing this one bowl at a time. Once these ingredients have been mixed together, dump in your chocolate chips and walnuts. Once everything is blended up nicely, add the mixture to the 9×5 pan and place the pan into the oven. Leave the bread in the oven for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and let the bread sit for about 15 minutes. Once that time has passed, flip the pan over and remove the bread from it.
Pro Tip: Before removing the bread from the pan, stick a knife in the middle of the bread to see if it is fully cooked.
Once the bread has been removed from the pan, I like to let it sit on a wire rack for another about and hour to let if fully cool off before cutting the bread and digging in. We have included a video demonstration of the steps outline above for those of you who are visual learners.
