Banana Nut Bread

When it comes to cooking with bananas, one of my favorite things to make is banana bread. Why? Making the bread is fast and easy and the health benefits of consuming bananas are numerous.

Health Benefits: Bananas are good for you because they are high in potassium and low in sodium, making them the ideal healthy fruit. They are great for reducing depression, achieving bone and intestinal health and for regulating high blood pressure.

Here are 3 of my favorite recipes.
