by A to Z for Moms Like Me

This is my mom’s banana bread recipe that is seriously the best! And I’m not just saying that because she’s my mom, or because I make it all the time. People ask me for this recipe all the time, and say it’s the best they’ve ever had.

As with all banana bread, make sure your banana’s are good and ripe (the more brown/black spots the better) You can also add walnuts, or even chocolate chips to this recipe if you like.
