Recipe: Banana Bread

Ok guys, seriously this banana bread is the best I’ve ever made! It is so moist and banana-ey (obviously not a word but once you try it you’ll understand).

I always have over ripe bananas either in my freezer or fruit bowl so I frequently bake banana bread using new recipes I’ve looked up online or on Pinterest. None have been good enough to make repeatedly and I finally have one I will use more than once! Small victories, but it’s always exciting to add a new recipe to your collection, right?
