Coffee Toffee Banana Bread
Banana bread has a sweet bitter taste along with toffee taste that makes it a little more special than regular banana bread. It tastes just like professional bakery cakes products.
3 large mashed bananas
1/2 cup coffee
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup wheat flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp instant espresso
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix banana and coffee in a small bowl. In another bowl, whisk all remaining ingredients. Whisk olive oil and brown sugar in other bowl. Add eggs one at a time and add vanilla essence and the banana-coffee mixture and stir until combined.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring with a wooden spoon or a spatula until just incorporated.
Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool down. Then, slice it neatly.
The result is moist banana bread with a fun flavor twist that goes perfectly with your morning coffee.
Chocolate Coffee-Almond Granola
½ cup unsalted butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup coffee syrup
1 tbsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp instant espresso powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup almond meal
1 cup sliced almonds
2 cups oats
1 cup chocolate covered coffee beans
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, blend butter with sugar until smooth. Then mix in the coffee syrup, vanilla, cocoa powder, espresso powder, and salt. Add almond meal, sliced almonds and oats in it. Pour the granola mixture onto the baking sheet. It should be about ½-inch thick. Roast in the preheated oven until the edges become golden brown. Keep the granola bars in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
You can still make this if you don’t get the coffee syrup. Instead you can use ½ cup dark maple syrup and add an extra tablespoon of the espresso powder.
All these ingredients are readily available in the market. With the coming of online coffee stores, purchasing has been never so easy. You can buy chocolate online with just a mouse click.
