Cannabis Banana Bread
Banana bread always brings me back to my childhood. More often than not, my family wouldn’t eat all the bananas my parents tried to keep around the house for us, and it was my job (as a baker since I first got hold of an Easy-Bake Oven) to repurpose them before they went to waste. Banana bread is still one of my favorites; I often grab extra bananas at the store so I’ll have some brownish ones (you definitely want to use overripe fruit when you make banana bread) ready to mash a week or so later.
This recipe is a little more grown up than my childhood version. The cinnamon and orange zest are optional, but they balance out the earthy cannabis flavors quite nicely. In a pinch, lemon zest can be substituted. The best part: it makes a great breakfast, a light afternoon snack, or a sweet dessert. If you’re the wake-and-bake type, use your favorite sativa strain to get those thoughts rolling; if you’re more of a midnight snacker, try it with a heavy indica to help you relax and turn off for the night.
