Little Farm Banana Bread – by popular demand!

I have been asked so many times for my recipe for Banana bread – and here it is! You will not see this anywhere else because ( and here is the secret) I adapted it from my Zucchini Bread Recipe and it worked! I also left out the traditional walnuts (don’t like nuts in bread) and also the nutmeg which I think has too distinctive a taste for my taste buds!

You will LOVE this! Of course we use our Little Farm home grown bananas, eggs and orange juice…. that does make a difference but it will still taste great! By the way you can also make these in muffin tins – they make up really well ! In addition, I also add raisins to my banana bread – which you add just before you put the mixture into the pans or muffin holders – optional ( about a cup).Banana Muffin
