Twenty-four years ago I was celebrating my 7th birthday with all my extended family at my grandparents house. I was about to blow out the candles when my parents called to wish me a happy birthday, and to tell me my mom was in labor with my sister Amanda…and I yelled “tell her to hold it in!!” :p (Don’t judge, I was 7)
In honor of both of our birthdays I wanted to share this Paleo Chocolate Banana Bread recipe that I made last year, so now you can celebrate too. :)
Today Jeff & I are heading to my favorite place…the beach! Even though we don’t live near the ocean, here in Chicago we do have Lake Michigan. Thankfully the sun is supposed to be shining bright with temps in the 80’s. Fingers crossed that the stand up paddle boards aren’t all reserved. :)
Last year on my birthday it rained most of the day but Jeff snapped this awesome photo and I just had to share.
Happy Birthday Amanda!
I’ve been posting a lot of dessert recipes lately and I’ve got one more for ya this week. Then I’m gonna cut the sugar because let me tell you, it’s been a little much for me.
Serve this banana bread for breakfast or dessert. Enjoy! :)
