Almond Banana Bread

Almond Banana Bread

 Bananas are like a fine wine or Jennifer Aniston… they only get better with age. Now, for bananas sake, I’m talking about aging a week. But, how cool are bananas? Really. Hellllooooo, Chiquita! What other fruit do you know that gets sweeter overtime? 

I’ve made a lot of banana bread in my day. Some of my fondest memories are late night bake-a-thons with my sister during the holidays or when I would bake huge loaves for all my sorority, ADPi sisters {PiLove}. By far, my favorite continues to be chocolate chip banana bread with walnuts. Mmmm. Although right now, since I’ve cut sugar completely out of my diet,  woo paleo lean out challenge!,  I wanted to create something that I could enjoy guilt free! Some people don’t like nuts or fruit in their baked goods, but I think its the best way to dress “a good” up. There is no need to add honey, maple, or coconut sugar to this recipe, the overly rip bananas give it all the sweetness it needs. Enjoy a slice with your morning coffee, an afternoon snack, or even a late night dessert.

Simply Enjoy!
