I am giving away a FREE 5ml Young Living Lavender essential oil this week, so I thought it would be a great time to share a way to use lavender oil in cooking. If you want to enter for the FREE give away, click HERE.
I can cook with Lavender and eat it too?
Cooking with Young Living Essential Oils is just one of the many ways we enjoy using our high quality therapeutic-grade essential oils. The subtle flavor of lavender in this recipe is yummy!
NOTE: You can NOT cook with any essential oil! Most essential oils are not therapeutic grade, not GRAS-generally regarded as safe, thus are not for internal use. They are cosmetic/fragrant oils. Please do not cook with your essential oil unless it is Young Living or food grade safe!
Lavender Blueberry Banana Bread
(recipe by Evelyn-adapted)
• 1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature (non-dairy butter great alternative)
• 2/3 cup sugar- preferably organic, raw sugar (not white) Sucanat is a good choice
• 2 large eggs
• 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted (preferably organic, unbleached)
• 1 drop Young Living Lavender essential oil
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup whole wheat flour, or unbleached, un enriched flour
• 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
• 1 1/4 cups blueberries
• 1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (Madagascar Vanilla Extract is a good choice)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, or coat with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, combine the butter and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl. Stir in the whole wheat flour and beat into the butter mixture. Fold in the bananas, blueberries, walnuts, lavender, and vanilla.
Pour into the prepared pan.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
