Tips To Make Your Banana Bread Tastier Within Minutes

Tips To Make Your Banana Bread Tastier Within Minutes

Banana bread is something most people enjoy eating. It can be baked using so many different recipes (i.e. adding chocolate, caramel, fruits, etc.).

Not everyone knows how to make delicious tasting bread. It takes experience and skill to make it taste just right. Here’s what I’ve learned: The secret to making great tasting bread is having a classic recipe where you can add a few additional ingredients in to give it a twist.

Today, we’ll be exploring some additional items you can add to make your bread tastier. Let get started.

Add Nutella

I’m sure you’ve eaten Nutella before and the taste is awesome…right? The next time you are baking banana bread, spread some Nutella on the entire loaf before serving. Make sure the bread has just come out of the oven when adding Nutella so the chocolate melts perfectly.

Here’s something else you can try: Add Nutella; then put the loaf in the oven for 10 minutes; this will allow for the flavors to mix even more.

Mix In Chocolate Chips

Everyone loves chocolate chips because most of us have been brought up eating them throughout our lives. When creating your next batch try adding mini chocolate chips with the ingredients before placing it in the oven. It’s different than the typical recipe; because you’re adding chocolate chips, it should be devoured in minutes. Remember, most people loves chocolate chips so your scoring brownie points by adding them into your banana bread recipe.

Add Other Fruits

This takes no more than a few additional minutes because all your doing is adding other fruits like pineapple and/or strawberries into the recipe. Cut these fruits while putting the regular ingredients into a bowl for preparation. After, simply mix them all together and bake until the bread is done. For the perfect taste, make sure you use fresh fruit, not artificial flavors.

Whip Cream

You don’t have to add whip cream when baking banana bread, but it’s a great addition to have on the side.

Take it even one step further and provide more add-ons like strawberries, chocolate, caramel, etc. These are all great flavors with banana bread, and you’re providing people with several options.

There is absolutely little preparation time for this because add-ons can be purchased at the grocery store while you’re shopping for other ingredients.

However, if you’re experienced then you can create fresh add-ons from scratch by melting chocolate and/or caramel.

Use Coconut Oil

Most banana bread recipes prefer you use oil instead of butter to grease your pan even though oil has more fat per ounce. The problem with oil is it can make the banana bread heavier and wet. This ruins the presentation of the bread when on the table, pushing people away from trying it. We recommend you use coconut oil when preparing banana bread because of its characteristics. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature and is slow melting providing the richness often seen with butter. It keeps the weight steady and removes the wet, soggy look from the banana bread.

Coconut oil also has a great, tropical smell, adding to the presentation, and increasing people’s appetites. The cool thing about making this change is it takes seconds because you are simply switching the oil you use…that’s all.

Final Thoughts

Banana bread has long been a custom in many homes. Searching online has been a huge help because everything is now in digital formats, which you can downloaded within seconds. If you google “banana bread recipes” you’ll find over 100 results on the first page. If you’re looking for the perfect banana bread recipe, start by searching online.

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

Video Summary

1. It is easier.

When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

    5. It could lead to better sleep.

    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

    6. It can help your skin.

    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

      Sleep well with your naked body!

      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
