Banana bread

As one of PAB's staple dishes, he sure does make one hell of a banana bread loaf.  Written on a now tattered recipe card, it's nice to finally have this recipe archived!  We were talking over dinner this evening about how much fun this blog is - if not only for other's enjoyment, but ours as well.  At a minimum, we have a great way to keep all of our recipes in order and look back over time, reliving the months past through, well...our eating.

ELZ & PAB's review: We don't really need to say much here, as we both love this recipe.  PAB has been making his banana bread for years.  It is quick & easy, and makes a great hostess gift!

Banana Bread, Chocolate Chips Optional on Foodista

you can also put chocolate chips in the mix (not just on top). I suggest both. :)

Nothing in the house for breakfast except eggs, rotten bananas and Greek-style yogurt. In the spirit of "waste not, want not" I made a loaf of banana bread. Here's the twist: peanut flour instead of regular flour and yogurt instead of sour cream. It's in the oven as I type (an hour...really!?!), but I'll let you guys know how it turns out.
