Once again I found myself looking at over ripe bananas. So full of brown speckles that it was just a brown banana at this point. Mushy and brown they look disgusting. But disgusting looking bananas are the BEST for making banana bread. Older bananas are sweeter than fresh ripe green/yellow bananas.
I wanted to re create the Biscoff Banana Bread I made last year. This time I added some greek yogurt a 4 tbsp of butter and I swirled cookie butter in. (Trader Joe’s brand “biscoff”) This banana bread was all I was looking for.
Sweet, dense, moist and not overly chocolatey. The banans still shined through.
This banana bread is quick and easy to whip up and the flavors will make your tastebuds do a dance! 🙂
