I accidentally made this very very good. So good that I cannot settle on a name for it and basically listed half the ingredients as the title.
This is a beautifully dense banana pudding for one that serves as a nice & quick breakfast/dessert/tea time snack. Dark chocolate and cranberries make it seem fancier than it is, since it basically takes 5 mins of mixing and 15-ish minutes of baking. It's also gluten-free for anyone with a gluten sensitivity/intolerance, because I've used jowar/sorghum flour.
AND IT TURNS OUT SO FREAKING GOOD?? LIKE I DID NOT EXPECT THIS TO COME OUT THIS WELL IN THE FIRST TRY ITSELF...BUT IT DID? IM LIKE BASICALLY A BAKING GENIUS TO HAVE PRODUCED THIS *dramatic spotlights, angelic chorus, the works*
srsly guys it's good, go make
1 tsp chia
1 large/2 small RIPE (important for sweetness) bananas, mashed
5 tbsp water
1 tbsp pb (or other nut/seed butter of choice)
3 tbsp jowar/sorghum flour
A generous pinch of salt (if unsalted pb is used)
/8 tsp cardamom pwd
topping ideas (optional, but highly recommended):
melted dark chocolate
the making of this glorious snack
it's really just a bunch of mixing, plopping it into a greased oven-proof bowl and baking it at 180 deg celcius, in a preheated oven, for around 20-25 mins, (depending on your oven, i think i use a convection bake or smth, i do not understand the terminology, but in case that was helpful.)
i am too lazy to follow the appropriate recipe-writing-format-or-whatever (or punctuate properly), but feel free to scroll to about 6.48 in the video below for more details(? which I doubt you'll get, since my youtube self is hardly any more put-together)
in the future, expect better food writing on this blog, i'm just slightly *waves hands around trying to explain the weirdness of my mood* rn, so yeah.
happy baking! and creating!
together, i believe we can truly unite and bask in the collective positivity that is banana bread.
