Ohhhhhhhh ya’ll! Last weekend I made banana nut bread for the first time, FROM SCRATCH, and not only was it was easier than I thought it would be, it was so delicious! Seriously, my kids inhaled that bread so quickly, it made me wonder why I didn’t make three more! I began searching for a healthy banana nut bread recipe after getting a craving to have some. See, in the South, we don’t grow up eating “healthy” so all the banana nut bread recipes I had from my grandmother and mom were made with really unhealthy ingredients. After looking around on Pinterest, I found one that I was confident I wouldn’t mess up and decided to give it a try. It’s SO good, I have been making them and giving them as gifts to friends, family and teachers. I posted about this on my instastories last weekend and ya’ll asked me many questions about my recipe so here it is. I added all of the ingredients to my Blendtec blender to make it super easy. The entire process takes me less than 5 minutes to prep. Harper is in LOVE with our blender and asks me to “help” all of the time so she actually pressed the button and did all of the work, haha. If you decide to try my recipe, please let me know how you like it!
