Our favorite things about this classic banana bread recipe:

  1. A great recipe that you can make the night before and have ready to go in the morning, or simply put extras in the freezer to just toast and go!

  2. Bakes an unbelievably moist banana bread, every time.

  3. It’s an easy recipe that is fun for kids to join in and make (they especially enjoy mashing the bananas!).

  4. Mix in or top the loaf with your favorite add-ins like walnuts, chocolate chips, oats, blueberries, etc.
