Recipe For Banana Bran Bread


The old saying goes, “When life hands you lemons….” my new version goes something like, “When neighbors hand you bananas, make blog posts!” Actually, that isn’t a very good saying, but bloggers know what I mean. There are blog posts hiding in everything around us! I told you on Tuesday what I did with some of the bananas we got from a neighbor. I thought, lest I bore you to death with banana posts, that I should simply combine all the rest in to one post. But then I thought better and split them up ! You may or not recall that I hate bananas. It stems from a dramatic scene of gluttony when I was three years old. I haven’t wanted to pass my aversion on to my kids, so I steel myself against the smell and feel of the offending fruit and bake with them anyway. I wash my hands a lot when handling bananas.

This recipe freeze well. I have tripled this recipe with great results.
