Cinnamon Banana Crumb Bread


This is truly the most amazing banana bread I’ve ever tasted! Its not original with me but I adapted the recipe – and oh boy, is it ever delicious! I love how totally moist it is and the crunchy, buttery crumbs are the perfect thing to top it off. 

Needless to say, (with some help!) we devoured an entire loaf, fresh from the oven, in minutes.  And it wasn’t hard either. {we must have been hungry!} In times like that, I desperately wish I could say it was Trim and Healthy Mama! LOL. =) Oh, and making it was way more fun than cleaning my house….. the house can always wait.

The dirt will still be there. It ain’t going no where!

Baking is virtuous too.
