This is the banana bread recipe that we use every year for our donation bread. My family likes to bake and give away food to those in need. Every winter holiday, we spend time baking these breads for the homeless in our local city.
It’s wonderful to see my children putting their loving intentions into creating and distributing this offering. This is a delicious version of a classic banana bread and is more than a snack, it’s a wonderful hearty gift.
