Banana Bread

So autumn is upon us and it’s time to get back into the kitchen and start creating!!  Here is a healthier version of the classic banana bread.  This version may be even yummier than the original – I think so but I’ll let you be the judge!  Simple to make and a great way to use up the extra bananas.  You can also add walnuts or cacao nibs to add more crunch and texture!  Makes a great quick breakfast toasted and topped with almond butter!Banana Bread
