Easy Blueberry Banana Bread

Oh. My. Goodness. This summer holiday business is insane. It’s become hugely apparent to me that during this time I can get nothing done whatsoever, apart from keeping the kid entertained, that’s it. That’s all I can manage. No housework, no admin, nada, zero, zip. The amount of times I’ve sat down to do an online food shop and been interrupted is ridiculous. I’ve literally not had the head space or brain power to put fingers to keyboard. How the heck do parents who work full time, manage their lives?! I hope everyone is surviving enjoying the one on one time with their kids. Anyone else looking forward to back to school/nursery next week? (small show of hands) Anyway, I’m easing myself back in with a simple post. Something I’ve found that has kept me and the kid busy a few times when the weather has been crap is making Banana Bread. A great time killer for a rainy afternoon. I found this recipe for blueberry banana bread which I’ve tried twice now and it’s a firm win.

Chocolate honeycomb brownies :)

I’ve written on here about my cooking habits and how I try to eat healthily (as much as humanly possible) Something the Mr & I had got into quite a bad habit of doing, was buying and eating chocolate bars mid week after dinner (damn you Freddo bars & Dairy fruit & nut) After our holiday to Cornwall we decided to have a bit of an overhaul and I’ve started to try and bake something every week or so, so that we’ve got a treat at home rather than feeling the need to go out and buy sugar loaded crap. At least if I make something, I know exactly what’s gone into it, right? Now these badboys are a real treat. Something to make once in a while and enjoy with ice-cream, yum. The addition of the honeycomb is something my husband asked me to add in, and I have to say it’s a match made in heaven. It adds a bit of crunch and erm, goo (did I just use that word?!) all at the same time. I promise you that these chocolate brownies are THE best homemade brownies you’ll ever try. Am I convincing you? Good.
