Mom’s Banana Bread


Banana bread is very popular in our home. My kids eat a lot of bananas but it never fails that we’ll have a few overly ripe bananas going to waste. That’s the point that I toss them in a bowl and whip up a loaf of bread. Now, I titled this ‘Mom’s Banana Bread’ because technically this is the recipe I grew up on. My mother is is creative in many ways, but recipe creation is not one of them (I love you, Mom!). All I am saying is that this recipe did stem from someone, somewhere, but the only credit I can give is back to my mom’s kitchen. You can vary the recipe by adding nuts or chocolate chips depending on your families preferences. I also tend to break up the flour and use at least half whole wheat. If you don’t already have your own fav banana bread recipe, I’m happy to share ours :)
