Work in Progress

This recipe is not ready yet for consumption. I am still experimenting with it.

In this current form the dough cooks very quickly and the crust/rhine is incredibly chewy. Is sweet but not as much as regular banana bread. When cooked the dough almost has a brownie like consistency. I think adjusting the baking soda and powder will adjust the dough consistency. I might try using sugar in the next recipe to see how it changes the bread overall.

Modified for high altitude baking in Santa Fe, NM.

I modified this recipe to comply with the Engine 2 Diet I started in April of 2012.
