The Most Delicious Banana Bread Recipe with a Twist

This is the most delicious banana bread recipe I’ve ever tasted. After trying the traditional banana bread recipe, and other variations, this one remains as the favorite in the #sojohome.

Before creating my own version of banana bread, the original recipe I was relying on for a while was from All Recipes. And finally, during the fall of 2019, I decided to play a bit. I wanted to know if a few extra (fall-inspired) ingredients would go well with the recipe. And lo and behold, it was the best damn banana bread recipe I’ve ever tasted. If you’re a fan, I think you’ll love this version too!
