Sometimes I really dream about food and then I wake up with crazy cravings. One of those mornings when I woke up I wanted delicious, dense, nutty, banana bread. I tried making it “healthier”, and I hope you all like it.
 
For this one, I used brown sugar and honey in this recipe and I got to assure you that it was wonderful. I suppose you can use maple syrup or agave nectar, but make sure to use correct measurements for those ingredients equal to sugar or honey.
 

Nevertheless, this kind of bread is perfect the next day, so since we have leftovers I genuinely enjoyed every little crumb of this bread with my morning coffee or afternoon tea. Additionally, I love baking it in square cake pans because it comes out perfectly baked and far less dense than when I bake banana bread in my loaf bread.

 

With that being said, if I do bake in my loaf pan, I always use less batter because I consider my middle part a bit more baked (laughing my butt off haha).

No, seriously, have you ever baked banana bread, and it looks superb, but when you slice into the bread, it’s like raw? I can’t even tell you how many times that happen to me so that’s why I switched completely to square baking pans.

Okay, I hope Y’all make this bread and like it…

HAPPY COOKING!

Course Breakfast
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 9 SQUARES
Author Sandra | Sandra's Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon powder
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Canola oil
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Brown Sugar preferably dark
  • 1/2 cup Honey 3/4 cup Maple Syrup could be used
  • 3-4 ripe Bananas
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour Non-Stick Square Cake Pan 9x9 or use parchment paper like I did.
  2. Combine together the flour, oats, sugar, salt, baking powder, soda and cinnamon powder in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together until somewhat smooth in texture: bananas (that you previously just smashed with a fork), Eggs, Honey and Canola Oil. I used an electric mixer.
  4. Now to the wet mixture add dry mixture, combine it together then add chopped walnuts (or any nuts that you prefer), and fold the nuts in the batter.
  5. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread (or into the crown of the bread, if you are making a loaf)., and it comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for at least 5 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack.
  6. Allow it to cool completely, or at least for an hour before serving.

Recipe Notes

This bread is even better the next day, just heat it for 30 seconds in the microwave and you will be amazed. You can also make this as muffins or a loaf pan, although I like it in this type of baking pan because it bakes much better. If you like your banana bread sweeter use 3/4 cup of brown sugar. I liked mine just the way it is, but we all have different tastes. If the honey is too sugary you can place a jar in a warm water for a couple of minutes until the honey becomes soft and smooth in texture.

 

LOVE, PEACE, AND ROCK-N-ROLL,

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

When it comes to delicious food to share with your family and friend these buns are definitely a way to go. They are simple and with a little prep, these could be done in no time. I absolutely love a good sandwich as well as homemade buns, calzones, and of course, BBQ pulls apart pork. So these are definitely a bit of all combined together, don’t you think?!
I used pizza dough to make these as well as some leftover pull apart pork that I mixed with BBQ sauce, and let me tell you, they were delightful.

My family enjoyed this barbecue pull apart stuffed buns very much, especially my husband who loves these types of food. I made them many times with different filling, such as ham and cheese, or sauteed ground beef and onion and they are always a crowd pleaser.
I am going to link a recipe for my dough, as well as slow cooker pull apart pork in the recipe section. If you are going to make 4 large buns, then you’d need at least 2 tablespoons of BBQ pull apart pork per bun. You can buy it store, or make it yourself.

Now, let’s start cooking.

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough — makes 4 large rolls or 6 smaller, recipe below, or use store-bought
  • 8-10 tablespoons  Slow Cooker Pulled Apart Shredded Pork  or store-bought
  • 1 cup Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 1 tbsp melted unsalted Butter for brushing
  • Sprinkle Garlic Powder for each bun
  • Sprinkle Dried Parsley for each bun

Instructions

  1. Divide a dough into balls approximately size of a baseball (about 9 inches in circumference). RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE PIZZA DOUGH 

  2. Flatten each ball into 5-6 inches in diameter and into less than 1/2 inch thick disks.
  3. Add about 2 tablespoons of barbecue pull apart pork and sprinkle cheese on top.

    HOMEMADE RECIPE FOR SLOW-COOKED PULL APART PORK 

  4. Close each bun — Bring the edges together and pinch them to seal the dough completely, leaving the edges clear. Continue until all the dough and filling has been used.
  5. Place in well-greased baking pan or line baking pan with the parchment paper. Do not put the buns too close together, as they spread. Let them rise, covered for about 30 more minutes, or until they are almost double in size. During the last 10 minutes of rising time, preheat your oven to 400F. Brush buns with melted butter before baking.
  6. Bake for 30-40 min, or until golden brown.
  7. 15 minutes before they are done, brush the buns lightly with just a few strokes of melted butter so that garlic powder and dried parsley could stick. You'd need just a sprinkle of two of garlic powder and dried parsley for each bun.
  8. When they are done, cover them with a large cotton kitchen towel and allow them to rest for about 10 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

Mine cracked a bit while baking, but I kept them only 15 minutes to do the second rise instead of 30 minutes. Make sure to allow them to rise up again from 30 to 45 minutes. They will be amazingly fluffy and delicious, however, the buns were pretty amazing regardless. You can use any cheese that you want or do not cheese at all, it is up to you. You can make the dough a day before and place it in the fridge. Make sure that it is completely covered to prevent from drying. If you make buns, yes, you can freeze them ahead and bake later. They are just wonderful. The baking time will not change significantly, but it might vary if the buns are frozen.

Skillet-Toasted Garlic Bread


You really don’t need a season change to enjoy garlic bread. It’s buttery, garlicky, cozy and delicious… and your house is going to pick up the aroma of the Italian restaurant. These are toasty and a bit crunchy on the outside and so soft on the inside. Perfection!

You can eat it with your favorite Italian pasta, or just slice it into long strips and dip in the marinara sauce. It’s perfect for sports parties such as basketball or football gatherings with your family and friends or perhaps makes it for your Sunday dinner.
My family loves these so much, that I cannot even express it, but what’s not to love, right?! It’s comfort food, a kick-ass side that you just have to love.

I hope you make these, and if you do, make sure to tag me on Instagram @sandraseasycooking #sandraseasycooking or Twitter @secooking #secooking

SKILLET TOASTED GARLIC BREAD

Super Easy and delicious Skillet Toasted Garlic Bread 

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 8
Author Sandra | Sandra's Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened/room temperature
  • 2 tsp. Dried parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Chili Flakes
  • 1 loaf of Texas Toast

Instructions

  1. If the bread is not sliced, then slice it into about 1 inch thick slices. You want a bread to have a nice bite to it.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the softened butter, parsley, garlic, salt and chili flakes until smooth.
  3. Lightly spread the butter mixture on one side of all the bread.
  4. Heat a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium heat and add toast.
  5. While it is toasting on one side, lightly spread the butter mixture on the other side.
  6. Flip the toast after about 2 minutes or until it is golden brown, and then toast the other side.
  7. You may serve it with parmesan cheese and marinara sauce, with pasta or salad.

Bake them in the oven:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Butter both sides and place on a baking pan. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the broiler on high and bake for 30-40 seconds more to get ultimate crunch.

Recipe Notes

I garnished these with some Za'atar, and I loved it. If you have any just sprinkle on top before serving, but you can sprinkle with parmesan cheese too. If you going to use cheese, skip on the salt. Cheese is salty enough, or just use a small pinch if you like it more savory.
