Recipe Notes;
☛It is super important that you do not over stir the batter or it will turn out dry and tough. Stir just very gently and just until the flour is incorporated. *Taste even better the next day!! The banana flavor is much stronger. *Cooking times can vary. Check on the bread after an hour or a little before. ☛Add walnuts or chocolate chips if desired.
