My Favorite Banana Bread Recipes

Want to make some tasty banana breads on this delicious holiday? Here are some of my favorite banana bread recipes:

Fluffy Banana Bread — The banana bread recipe is the classic one, but it calls for the egg whites to be beaten until fluffy before being folded gently into the mix.

Banana Nut Mix — Make your classic banana bread or muffin, but mix in chopped almonds, pecans, cashers, pistachios, and macadamia nuts to make yourself a nutty dessert!

Choconana Bread — Drop a few chocolate chips into your banana bread recipes, and eat the dessert while the bread is hot and the chocolate chips are melted and liquid.

Banana bread is a versatile dessert, so have fun whipping up your own breads on this special holiday!
