Did someone say banana bread?

There’s nothing that says home like the smell of fresh-baked bread. Banana bread is a huge family favourite around my home and it’s also super easy to make. I like to bake several at a time and freeze them. This is a huge time saver when I need last minute snacks, but don’t have the time to bake.

Banana bread is not only tasty, but it’s also versatile. It makes a wonderful on-the-go breakfast item, it can be packed in a lunchbox, or be offered as a warm after-school snack waiting when children hop off the bus. What’s more, it can also serve as a last-minute dessert option when guests turn up unexpectedly. The best part of baking my own snacks, I know that I am giving my children the highest quality ingredients without the additives found in most grocery store convenience foods.

For this recipe, I like to use ripe bananas because they will add to the sweet flavour. The riper your bananas, the sweeter the bread will taste.

I have also provided you with a link if you require gluten free options. There is no commission for me providing this link, it’s just one of my favourite places to find recipes.

Now let’s jump to the best part!
