banana bread

since it takes me ages to get ready, it’s nice to have a go-to snack for breakfast. banana bread has been one of my favorite breakfast or tea-time snacks since i was a kid. paired with honey butter, it’s heaven.

it lasts for a couple days but is best fresh out of the oven. instead of using all-purpose flour, i tried out gluten-free flour, and it turned out great! recipe is originally from bon appetit.

banana bread is great for a picnic, brunch, or even a gift!
