Good Monday afternoon everyone! I rarely post during the middle of the day, but here I am putting this before my shower. I’m a mess!
I’ve had black bananas staring at me in the kitchen for over a week now and I finally put them to good use this morning. I’ve seen some beautiful biscotti on so many blogs lately and since I’ve never made my own, I decided to give it a shot. Since I practically have a year supply’s worth of cinnamon chips I knew I’d be adding them to the banana bread dough. Let me tell you, it is a perfect match. I know we’ve talked about this before, but do try to get your hands a bag of cinnamon chips. They are great in so many baked goods!
Take a peek and Enjoy!!
