Banana Cranberry Bread


We LOVE banana bread! It’s one of the best tea time treats to have on a Sunday afternoon. Well, actually in our house we could eat it all day every day haha. I tried a few recipes for banana bread and found one that is so moist and delicious, added some cranberries and BAM… MAGIC!

I found this recipe on an awesome site called Stress Baking, and I am so glad I tried it because it works so well every time. Thank you Stress Baking for the recipe, I will definitely try more! I made it once with some chopped walnuts, and once with cranberries, both are delicious! I am sure that you can add whatever extras you enjoy in your banana bread and it will work out great! Let me know what you try.

So here is the recipe as I used it. Happy baking!
