meet: katie’s single-lady banana bread.

Hi sweets! Today I’m thrilled to bring you a guest post from one of my favorite bloggers – Katie. CKK is a go-to of mine for simple-yet-healthy recipes, and homegirl is a *pro* when it comes to single-serving meals/treats. So please read on to get to know Katie and for a new recipe of hers! xoxo G.

Hi!! I’m Katie, of the blog: Chocolate-Covered Katie.

It’s such an honor to be on Gracie’s blog. She is adorable and I love her for so many reasons! First, she appreciates all things cake batter, just like me! My own blog is filled with cake-batter recipes:

Such as the healthy Chocolate Cake-Batter Milkshake.

But more importantly, Gracie and I are both single ladies. When she asked me to highlight one of my single-lady cupcake flavors for today’s post, I was super-happy to oblige!

Single-Lady Banana Bread

(This makes one muffin or cupcake… Feel free to use a mini loaf pan if you’d rather have bread.)

  • 3T flour (30g) (such as spelt, ww pastry, all-purpose…)
  • heaping 1/16th tsp salt
  • 1 heaping tablespoon very-ripe banana (20g)
  • 1T oil, pre-melted vegan butter, applesauce, or combo (I used 10g coconut oil)
  • 1T liquid, or more or less as needed to moisten batter (nondairy milk or water)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder, and tiny pinch baking soda (for flavor)
  • Sweetener (For normal tastebuds, 1 to 1 and 1/2 T sugar. If you use liquid sweetener, cut back on other liquid. You can also use stevia. I omitted sugar, but most will probably want some.)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Mix the dry, mix the wet, then add the two together. Pour into an oiled (or sprayed) muffin pan. Smooth top of batter. Cook for 10-14 ish minutes. (You can also cook in a microwave: spray a dish or mug with oil, and microwave about 90 seconds.)

See original single-lady post for Nutritional Information.

Let’s talk frosting!

This is really good with healthy Vanilla Fudge Frosting.

But it’s just as good with regular ole pb, coconut butter, or even plain!

Healthy can be naughty…

On my blog, I try to show that healthy food can taste amazing when it’s prepared the right way. One shouldn’t have to choose between good health and good taste; you can have your cake (preferably chocolate!) and eat it too.

Please do stop by sometime, at Chocolate-Covered Katie, and say hi. I love meeting new bloggie or reader friends! Smile

    CCK was the first fit blogger I came across, totally by chance, and now I am in love with this whole blogging community. All of these (mostly) women who are taking healthy eating and making it something way more fun and delicious than ordering fast food. Amazing guest post. I’m a single lady as well so I have to try the banana bread! :D

    I may be single, but a single lady banana bread would not do it for me. I could devour a whole loaf! ;) This recipe does look great though!

    I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never checked out your blog Katie! I’m excited to go lurk it for more delicious treats. :D
