Banana Bread

I had a hankering for banana bread last week.  One of my favorite snacks/breakfasts is bananas and peanut butter (no mayo!).  I'm not a big sandwich fan; I just slather the banana with peanut butter and go about my way.  This is a family recipe; I don't add walnuts (not a big fan in my banana bread), but you are more than welcome to!

Thawed bananas being mushed
 {I freeze my bananas before making banana bread so they do turn black.  However, they are much easier to mush after they've thawed from being frozen}

Wet ingredients
 {You mix all the wet ingredients together, and the batter looks like this--it's okay!  It will come together when you add the flour!}
