Simple Banana Bread Recipe

Oftentimes we all have good intentions of trying to eat more fruit.  If you find yourself with too many leftover bananas that have ripened, make a simple Banana Bread.

Banana Bread Recipe

This family recipe for a quick banana bread is an easy grab and go out the door to head to school, work, or sit down and enjoy at home.

If you buy bananas to specifically make banana bread, they will ripen faster if you place them in a brown paper bag, such as a brown lunch bag.
