When I tried this recipe for the first time it lacked the "wow" factor. So, I tweaked it a bit and the result is the best banana bread I have ever tasted. I also make mini loaves around Christmastime to give as gifts; always a big hit. Enjoy!

Banana bread is the ultimate quick bread and this one is delicious! It has a light, fluffy texture is made with ingredients you probably have on hand. It kind of tastes like a sweet banana cake. Enjoy this for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dessert. The next time you find overripe bananas on your counter, don't toss them. Whip up a batch of this easy to make banana bread.
