happy spring:) there is nothing that makes me happier then the sight of rotten bananas! i use to hate any form of banana unless it was mashed into a cake/bread.. but banana & i are cool now. this recipe is honestly the best banana bread you will ever make! i have come up with the perfect balance of butter and oil, because why chose just one? i also use raw sugar in and on top of the banana bread for the texture (& health benefits i suppose). the results will be a moist, dense, sweet bread that you can add just about anything you like into it (walnuts, chocolate, raisins [yuck] & more chocolate).
