Last week I had a chance to read Super Foods RX written by Steven Pratt M.B and Kathy Matthews. The whole idea, approach, recipes and advices are wonderful.
I had to try and make one of the recipes from the book, I picked:
Golden Door Blueberry Bread
Makes 1 Loaf
1 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
11/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 ripe medium bananas
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large omega-3 egg
1 large omega -3 egg white
2 tablespoons canola oil
11/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
2 tablespoons grated orange zest
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup blueberries, soaked in warm water and drained
Nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, optional
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray 9×5 -inch loaf pan with vegetable oil spray.
In the large mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and all spice. Stir in the whole wheat flour, cornmeal and salt.
In the blender combine the bananas, brown sugar, egg, egg white, canola oil, and buttermilk and process until smooth. Add the orange zest and pulse until just combined. Make a well in the flour mixture. Pour the banana mixture into it and mix until almost incorporated. Add the walnuts and drained blueberries and gently mix into the batter. Do not overmix.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 5 minutes.Remove from the oven, invert n a wire rack and cool briefly before slicing.
Serve each slice topped with 1/2 cup scoop of nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, if desired.
Golden Door Blueberry Bread is very tasty.Texture is nice because of the walnuts and blueberries. Goes well with cup of warm milk or hot tea.
