This Classic Banana Bread is perfectly flavourful, moist and sweet! With chopped walnuts or even chocolate chips, you can enjoy this banana bread in many ways. Eat it for dessert or breakfast! One way I like to enjoy banana bread, Is warmed up and smeared with a thick slab of butter. Yum!
Honestly, I love bananas but we usually buy way too many at the store. My local grocery store sells around 12-15 bananas for 1 dollar! Now that’s a deal I cannot pass up. However, I end up with a bunch of spotty bananas. My favorite way to use up all of those overripe bananas? This homemade banana bread recipe!
