Cinnamon Maple Banana Bread

Serves: 6

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great start to your week yesterday!

A few weeks back I was craving banana bread. I have no idea why, but I just couldn’t get the craving to go away. So, after putting it off for about a week, I finally decided to just make some! I had ripe bananas just waiting to be used anyway, so it was perfect timing. I asked the boyfriend if he wanted some banana bread and he said ‘absolutely’. I started making this recipe and opened my cabinet to take out the stevia when I saw my maple extract and cinnamon sitting there. I wondered what would happen if I added a bit of each into the recipe. I asked the BF if he would mind it being “Maple Cinnamon” and he said not at all (he’s picky and I didn’t want to end up with a loaf of bread all for me to eat). So, in went some maple and cinnamon……and out came this amazing recipe! :)

This bread tasted out of this world!!! The maple and cinnamon complimented the bananas perfectly! It was moist and packed with flavor! I ate it for breakfast, snack and dessert along with some greek yogurt! YUM! The funny thing is that after checking in with the boyfriend to see if it was ok to add the maple and cinnamon……I ended up eating the whole loaf myself because it was THAT good….and he didn’t get 1 slice! Sorry love! ? Guess it just means I need to make it again!
