Some weeks we eat bananas in what seems like every meal and some weeks we don't. And it's those weeks we wonder what those black speckled things are on the side of the counter. When your bananas are way past chopping onto a slice of almond buttered bread or festive trifle, you can either peel them and place in the freezer for smoothies or make a loaf. Like this one, right here It's made with just enough good stuff to ward off the guilt and it will impress your coffee guests and make your kids smile.
