Banana Bread

This recipe happened on a “I feel like baking something” kind of Sunday morning.

I had some extra bananas that were starting to get a little gross and didn’t have anything for breakfast.

Perfect solution: banana bread.

First time banana bread baker, right here.

I started dumping everything into the bowls and mixing it all together until I opened the fridge and realized – SHIT – no eggs.

I think Tuna was craving banana bread just as much as I was, because he saved the day and went to grab some eggs for me. 🙂

  1. Love your blog! I am trying to eat mostly clean myself and change my ways. I have a question though. Is canola oil and brown sugar “clean”??? I have no idea!

  2. I totally feel your pain on running out of eggs at the last minute! I ended up making a “flax” egg for my zucchini muffins the other day since I had no eggs on hand. Worked like a dream! Your bread looks delicious 🙂 I always end up adding cinnamon and nutmeg too!

Tell me all the things.
