The very BEST Banana Nut Bread

Banana Nut Bread is definitely one of those things that instantly brings me to my childhood.  

My mom used to make it all the time growing up.  There’s just something so warm and comforting about it- the smell alone really makes me happy.  C’mon, tell me you agree?

This Banana Nut bread recipe is no doubt the best, and has been in my family for many years.  It’s perfectly moist and insanely delicious- it makes for the best on-the-go breakfast, snack, or brunch app. My guilty pleasure is putting a slice of butter on it and warming it up for about 10-12 seconds…OMG SO.GOOD.
