We’re all looking for things to do during quarantine that are healthy and safe, and it doesn’t always feel like there are many options. All of the reasons you used to have to leave the house—work, school, visiting senior relatives in Laguna Woods, cheering at an Angel’s game until you lose your voice—have suddenly been placed off-limits.
Some days it can be overwhelming. Despite all the smoke and uncertainty in the air, however, there are steps we can take to improve our lives – and the lives of everyone around us.
Learning How to Make Homemade Edibles
Quarantine is the perfect time for self-reflection, growth, and to learn how to become the next Martha Stewart of cannabis edibles. You can cut down on kitchen waste and use your overripe fruit to make weed baked goods. Cooking with cannabis might be intimidating, but we’ve got you. Let’s start with something simple: banana bread.
420 Four-Ingredient Cannabis Banana Bread Recipe
Makes 8 servings. Adapted from the Food Network’s 3-Ingredient Banana Bread recipe.
This inspired riff on 3-ingredient banana bread will level up your afternoon Pumpkin Spice Latte break. You can pair this easy loaf with a steaming mug of THC-infused tea, top with weed-infused whipped cream, or just eat it plain for a wake-and-bake breakfast.
- 4 over-ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1 box spice cake mix (standard 15.25 oz volume)
- Your favorite cannabis tincture
- 9” x 5” x 3” loaf pan
- Parchment paper
Peel 3 of the bananas and add to a large bowl. Mash with a fork until smooth and even.
Crack the eggs into a small bowl and beat lightly with a fork, then combine with banana mixture.
Read the dosing guidelines on the side of your favorite cannabis tincture. Multiply the dosage by 8 and add to the mixture.
Add cake mix to bowl and whisk until no lumps remain.
You don’t want your batter mixture to stick to the loaf pan, so make sure you line it with parchment paper, leaving a 2” overhang on the longer sides.
Once the loaf pan is lined, pour in the batter, smoothing the top.
Slice the remaining banana into “coins,” placing on top of the loaf in a pleasing pattern.
Bake at 350F for around 50 minutes. Insert a clean toothpick to make sure the loaf is fully baked. If it comes out clean, remove loaf from the oven.
Let cool, slice, and serve plain or top with your favorite vanilla ice cream. If there’s any delicious bread left over, refrigerate or freeze any extra and toast to reheat.
How to Store Banana Bread Cannabis Edibles
Banana bread can be stored in the freezer for months. Just make sure to slice your loaf and wrap it up well to prevent freezer burn.
Always make sure to store your cannabis treats away from children or pets. Before putting the banana bread away, clearly label the package to warn any snack-seeking college kids or roommates in the house that the loaf contains THC. Those who don’t partake in cannabis may be upset if they are given an edible without their consent, and even cannabis lovers prefer to know when they’re taking a dose.
