Super Moist Banana Bread

DSC04858

I am a banana bread junkie, which means I am always on the quest for a yummy banana bread recipe.  And this one did not disappoint.

It was delicious, moist and dense … oh, and easy to make!

And you know what else was awesome about making it?  Getting rid of a few extra ripe bananas from my freezer – or as my husband likes to call it – my “banana graveyard” … LOL

As much as he pokes fun at me for having an obscene amount of blackened bananas in our freezer, he takes what I make with them very seriously.  Yep, you guessed it.  He is also a banana bread junkie.  Clearly we are a match made in heaven 🙂

Here’s what you’ll need to make this Super Moist Banana Bread …

???????????????????????????????

Add your dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl …
