Quick and Easy Banana Bread

If your family is anything like mine, they absolutely love banana bread. I love banana bread too, it’s delicious, it’s convenient, it can be a snack, breakfast, dessert or even something to pop in the freezer and defrost when guests arrive. It’s fast to make, it’s a one bowl wonder and every last morsel always gets eaten. A true winner!

If you have pears, you could always make a banana and pear bread or if your family don’t like bananas you could make a delicious coconut loaf.
