In our house banana bread isn't called banana bread, it's called Monkey bread. We call it that because our little Monkey Meritt LooooooVVVEeeees Monkey bread! She equally loves to make Monkey bread with Mama! Squishing the banana's is her favorite part! My favorite part is that this recipe is so easy and fool proof that having a little helper make this recipe with you, is easy and fun!
So, if you love you some banana bread like we do, give this easy recipe a try! After all it is Monkey approved! ;-)
