Homemade Banana Bread

Homemade Banana Bread

I don’t make homemade bread enough!

I love baking breads! It seems that banana bread is the most frequented of all bread recipes in our household. It’s a great way to use up overly-ripe bananas. I hate seeing them go to waste!

I try to buy what we need but it seems if I buy only 3-4 bananas, then they disappear too fast. If I buy more, they sit there too long! I can’t find a happy medium on our banana cravings from week to week. So when that happens, we get banana bread!


Warm, moist and delicious…


Breakfast, snack, or dessert…


Add a little butter…




Don’t worry, I basically licked every crumb off of my counter!
