Banana Bread


Good morning all! Today I wanted to share will y’all a pretty regular recipe for my house. My fiancé loves bananas, but they tend to go bad so fast before they can all be consumed. I personally don’t like to waste food. It was how I was raised, and it almost physically hurts my to through away food. So, I make Banana Bread once or twice a month depending on the availability of over ripened bananas in my house. I love it because not only is it a great breakfast or dessert, but I also give it away if I have too much. I love to gift it to my family, friends, and coworkers so that they can enjoy but also, so it doesn’t go to waste. The best thing about baking is sharing it with others. So, they next time your family or you don’t eat your bananas make some bread and share the love!


First step is to gather all the ingredients.

Then I mash the Bananas. I find a fork works perfectly.

I combine all the ingredients and mix.

Here is half of my dough with the chocolate chip. Those are my favorite.

My second half of the dough with walnuts. Those are Daniels favorite.

Then my mini loafs are ready to be put into the oven.

The finished product!
