I’ve never found a banana bread recipe that I really liked. But my husband is a big fan of banana bread. So I started experimenting until I came up with this recipe. I think it’s the best. My hubby doesn’t seem to mind either. : )
I made sure to incoporate a decent amount of bananas so you can really taste them. Make sure you use ripe bananas too. I have a ripe bunch on my counter right now just waiting to be mashed up for this again!
