Banana Bread

 

The one thing I love about banana bread is how versatile it is.  I normally pass on following a recipe but instead use what I have in the house.  The end result is always delicious.  For awhile I was adding in chocolate chips but I have come to realize I prefer it without.  A little bit of texture is nice so I used sliced almonds in this batch.  I also added in some unsweetened shredded coconut and old fashioned oats.  This loaf was dense but not heavy.  It lasted just over a day between Josh and I so as you can imagine it was pretty yummy.
