Hey! As most of you probably know by now I have four kids and sometimes a bunch of bananas barely lasts 24 hours in our home but other times they sit untouched until I realize they are completely brown. Watching food go to waste is basically like throwing away money in my eyes so whenever the bananas get too ripe I make a loaf of moist banana nut bread and the kids come running. Their favorite way to eat it (and mine) is to eat a slice while it’s still warm with butter slathered on top. Yum!
I can still remember my mom making banana nut bread before school and we would wake up so excited because it was a change from the normal cereal or toast. The smell filled the house and when we were done she would wrap a slice for our lunch boxes. I don’t make it often but when I do I always hope it turns out as good as the bread my mom makes.

With the smell of banana bread making its way through the house I promise the loaf won’t last long.
