Mouth watering? These little banana bread loaves are such a treat! Sorry for the ridiculously long title, I’m known for having mile long titles for my recipes. This is my entry for The Banana Bread Bake-off with Not Quite Nigella. There’s still time to get your entry in, check it out. I’m always up for a good bake-off!
Also, do check out Phemomenon’s blog for her very sweet”Blogging for Babies” Little Wonders Event round up!
I was brainstorming as to what kind of banana bread I wanted to make and I started thinking of some of my favorite ingredients right now. Cinnamon chips, white chocolate and coconut. These little loaves were the perfect combo of my favorites right now and are so tasty. I highly recommend trying them when you see you need to use up those bananas! Who can resist that sweet drizzle? Not me!
Don’t those cinnamon chips look yummy inside?!
This is how I prefer it, more drizzle please! Enjoy everyone!
