I love bananas. I love them fresh, in smoothies, on a banana split, dipped in chocolate, covered in peanut butter, and…in banana bread! There’s nothing quite like a slice of warm banana bread in the morning, the afternoon, or late at night. The problem is, when I make it, I can’t seem to stop eating it and before I know it half the pan (or more) is gone. Sigh…at least it has fruit in it, right?! This recipe will make the most amazing banana bread ever. Don’t just trust me on this, make it and find out for yourself.
