Basic Banana Bread

This post will be short and sweet, much like making banana bread. Banana bread is one of my favourite things to make. It’s simple, delicious and I tell myself it’s healthy because it’s made with bananas!
While the sight of mushy brown bananas may gross some people out. They set my heart aflutter. This recipe uses 3 bananas. Sometimes I just let my bananas turn so that I can make banana bread, or banana muffins, or banana cupcakes . . . the possibilities are endless!
I used ground flax seeds mixed with water to replace the eggs and I think it gave the bread a slightly nuttier flavour then regular egg replacer.
Banana bread never lasts long in this house. A full loaf will last maybe two days before the boyfriend and I have polished off every last bite.
It’s finally starting to feel like spring, so grab some banana bread, grab your dog and head out to the park!
