Banana Nut Bread

I’m going to admit, as much as I try to avoid big corporate chains, I’ve come to accept there are some chains that I’m grateful for. Starbucks for example will tolerate my picky double non fat no whip latte urges. Not only that, their banana nut bread is worth the trip alone but it gets pricey at nearly $2 a slice. So the other night I was recipe surfing and found a great recipe from for this super easy fool proof banana nut bread. My friends and family loved it so I think you will too. ENJOY!

    • I hope you give it a try! I feel like quick breads are underrated because they’re simple. Right now I’m on the search for a solid gingerbread recipe. Good luck friend!
