Nicole's Banana Bread

This recipe is the ultimate comfort food for me! It became that way freshman year of college. Anytime I would visit home or family came my way, I would get a delicious homemade loaf of my sister's banana bread, normally made with chocolate chips (the best way to make banana bread, of course!)

This week when I just wasn't feeling bananas but had a bushel, I decided it was time to try to get my sister's secret banana bread recipe. To my surprise, she didn't put up a battle but was so willing to give me the recipe, I got an email for it that night! Thank you again, Nicole! I was a little nervous to make the bread because I had to live up to Nicole's loafs. Thankfully, it turned out just as good as her's! Plus, I learned the recipe is quite easy. You could easily make it without a hand mixer and overall it is a quick prep and easy clean up.
