Banana Bread Breakfast Bars

Happy Friday! Who’s ready for the weekend?! This week has been so crazy for me, lots of fun things annnnnd not so fun things. On Halloween I went to see Troye Sivan with my two friends and it was SO FUN! I’ve been listening to Blue Neighborhood nonstop this week because hearing it live rekindled my obsession haha. For real, though, it’s such a good album and you can listen to it for free on Spotify! 

Here are my Top 10 Songs this week:

  1. Heaven by Troye Sivan
  2. Fun by Troye Sivan 
  3. Morning in America by Jon Bellion
  4. Eyes Shut by Years & Years
  5. Happy Little Pill by Troye Sivan
  6. Bridges by Broods
  7. Suburbia by Troye Sivan
  8. Take the World by Storm by Lukas Graham
  9. DKLA by Troye Sivan
  10. Good Grief by Bastille

(If you have any song suggestions PLEASE comment below or on Instagram – I’m always looking for new tunes!)

Then I had a bunch of presentations and tests that were pretty stressful, but that’s over now πŸ™‚ I hung out with a friend after school yesterday, and then ran the Skippo 10k trail race with my aunt today – so life’s pretty good all in all!

Enough about me – What was the highlight of your week?

Also, I’ve been thinking about starting to make YouTube videos regularly. I feel like I’ve been a bit uninspired lately and looking to find new creative outlets. I want to of course share recipes, but also do some sketches, lifestyle videos, or vlogs – what do you think? I could even do some in French or *maybe* Spanish. What kinds of videos would you like to see? 


Now – time for the recipe! These bars make a great running-out-of-the-door-at-6am breakfast, yummy snack, or a healthy dessert alternative. This recipe was originally going to be another banana bread recipe but I couldn’t find my loaf pan, so I used a 9×9, and it worked! It just goes to show that sometimes great things come out of improvising πŸ‘
