I’ve done it again, I’ve made a new banana bread recipe for what is probably the hundredth time on this blog. When I first started blogging and creating recipes, I thought that there were like three or four different variations of banana bread: plain, chocolate chip, pumpkin and chocolate banana bread. That was a very narrow way of thinking on my part because there are endless variations and flavors of banana bread.
Every week I find myself with a handle of overly ripe bananas sitting on my counter and every week I’m challenged to create a new banana bread recipe. This week I sweetened my banana bread with honey and added poppy seeds for a little extra crunch. I’m not a huge fan of using bananas in recipes other than banana bread or healthy pancakes–you should totally try if you haven’t yet!
