#throwbackthursday: Trent’s banana bread

Trent made his banana bread this past week, so it feels like the perfect time for a #tbt. He took half a loaf to school with him the other day. Someone told him that it is the best banana bread they’ve ever had. Yep.

I don’t make banana bread. One thing I inherited from my mom is an issue with bananas. My banana phobia has improved dramatically over the last few years, but old, black bananas that are necessary for making banana bread, I still can’t do. I don’t know if there are better banana bread recipes out there. I certainly won’t be the one to start making loaf after loaf to find out. But I love this one. This bread is moist, fluffy and sweet and with chocolate chips and your choice of nuts on top, let’s face it, it’s essentially cake that you can eat for breakfast or as a snack. Sneaky, sneaky bread, oh, how I love you.
