Bountiful Banana Bread

banana bread
It warmed my heart this weekend when my daughter, whose off at college, sent me a picture of the banana bread she baked to share with her roommates. It was like a little hug bringing us close together again even though there are many miles between us.
The recipe she used is the same one I made for my children when they were little lovingly shared by my mother in law. Three generations baking banana bread makes this recipe extra special!
I have always been a firm believer in adding nuts to banana bread, however, tested both ways, I really think this one is better without!
Make some for your kids TODAY and create those lifelong family connections!

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
