Banana Bread

I’m playing catch-up. I have been flying all over this lovely country and trying to cram in my own meals as much as possible. Before i left to Miami one morning i really wanted to make some Banana Bread for my friends.
 I mashed up some bananas, added some whole wheat flour, baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon, and a little sugar and bam… Sliced it up and put it in these cute little containers i found at target. Such a cute treat.
This is the best Banana Bread Recipe I have come across. It’s called, “Banana Banana Bread” due to it’s extreme banana flavor. I have used this recipe from ‘All Recipes’ plenty of times but this time, I ‘healthified’ it by using half wheat flour, half white flour, halving the sugar, and adding 1 tsp of cinnamon and vanilla. At the end of the day it’s still Banana Bread so if you want to go for the original recipe… i don’t fault you.
