Banana Bread

We love bananas here at our house, but for some reason, the last bunch I got seems to have sat and sat on our counter without being touched. This means that I have 5 bananas that will probably be thrown away since they are almost completely black. That was until I thought, “Duh, why not make banana bread?”

This recipe is from Alyssa at The Recipe Critic and she made it look and sound so delicious that I just had to give it a try. She is a new food blogger like me, so be sure to go and show her some love too!
