Banana Loaf

This recipe works best when made using really ripe bananas, the browner the better! It tastes delicious straight out of the oven. I didn’t even get a chance to take a better picture once it was cooked! Please note this is not a SW friendly recipe, I like to bake from time to time and will share baking recipes for friends who are not following a diet. Hope you enjoy this recipe, feel free to tag me in your pictures if you make this or any other recipe from my blog.
