RECIPE BACKSTORY
I thought banana bread would be the ideal thing to make healthy. This came out very moist. Heavy, not Too crumbly, but still sweet enough to be a treat. Bananas shouldn't be all yellow (or green) to make a bread that tastes strongly enough of banana! I let the one that got brown go REALLY brown, then throw it in the freezer. Then when I have 3 or more and feel like making banana bread there they are!
