Super Easy Banana Bread Recipe

banana breadsMy kids absolutely love banana bread. I even put it in their school lunches to switch up the sandwich ritual I seem to have going on. It seems like I am always buying bananas and sometimes we don’t go through them as quickly as I like. So they turn brown and then what do I do with them? I either put them in the freezer or make a batch of this bread. This recipe is super easy and yummy. So the next time you have bananas that are turning a little brown, try this out!
