Guys… I had the oldest banana burning a hole in my kitchen table. And the truth is, when it’s freezing out and there’s like a foot and a half of snow outside, the main answer is to warm up your house with baking AND to eat that goodness right out of the oven.
So I had this for a snack and then chips and salsa for dinner, and I might’ve looked like a scrub all day because, let’s be real, I didn’t leave the house except to move my car to a less stuck-in-the-snow spot and Elliot is totally cool with it. He thinks I’m pretty fun whether I have mascara or real pants on anyway.
BUT I’ve made this recipe about 4 times now. It’s so good and it’s got pantry business in it. Nothing weird. Sometimes I put brown sugar in it and pear sugar on top. Sometimes I use all honey in it, or olive oil, or put walnuts on top.
