Banana Bread Recipe

Originally Published June 24, 2019 by Fifty Shades of Mommy

My son has been dairy free for about 7 months(ish) now and we are starting him on the dairy ladder to slowly re-introduce dairy back into his system to see if his intolerance has lessened or gone away. Step 1 is baked in butter or milk at 350 degrees for at least 15 minutes. This recipe was the perfect start to this because he loves bananas and he loves bread. I always have a few bananas that are a little past their prime laying around and this is such an easy recipe. It is quite simple, but very delicious and moist. I’ve made it with the walnuts chopped in the bread and I’ve also made it so the whole walnuts are just sprinkled on top. Both are absolutely delicious and add some crunchy texture to the bread if you like. Otherwise, without walnuts tastes just as good too (and I don’t have to worry about the baby choking on them!)
