Cherry Almond Banana Bread Recipe...WHAT?!?

Cherry Almond Banana Bread  (And a Giveaway!)

     Oh my stars!  I have to say this bread turned out soooooo yummy!  First of all, it's Bread! Everyone knows I love bread in every flavor, shape, and form.  But then, I used my delicious Cherry Man Cherries and they just sent the recipe I was working on right over the top!
I am addicted to Cherry Man Cherries.  I was so glad they sent me a little box after tasting them at the Create Make Celebrate Retreat (Hosted by the fabulous Laura Kelly).  But-My supply is running low so I will be off to grab some more soon.  If you are not lucky enough to have a local grocer that carries Cherry Man, you can grab some here!

Squirrel!! Ok now back to the bread.  Here is the recipe which can be Fat Free with 2 small changes!:
Cherry Almond Banana Bread
Makes 1 loaf (I usually quadruple)
1 3/4 cup Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp Almond Powder or Extract
1/3 cup Applesauce
2/3 cup Sugar
2 Eggs (use Egg Beaters for *Fat Free version)
1 cup Mashed Bananas
1/2 cup chopped Cherry Man Cherries (+ or - to taste-I used the Cherry Man jumbo topping Cherries)
4 tsp Cherry Juice from jar
Sliced Almonds  sprinkled on top (omit for *Fat Free version)
Bake at 325* for 50-60 minutes for large loaf 35-40 minutes for small loaves
(Toothpick should come out clean when inserted in middle of loaf)

And BAM!  You have tasty bread that is perfect for breakfast or snacking!

I hope you get yourself some Cherry Man Cherries and try this recipe out.  You WON'T regret it!
