The BEST Pecan Banana Bread [recipe]

img 0284

Bananas are a staple in our household, my kids are obsessed with them and they make quick & easy snacks.  At least once a month, I purposely leave out three bananas until they turn brown…I do this because over-ripe bananas are the KEY to a great banana bread! Often, if I’m not ready, I’ll freeze the bananas until I’m ready to make a banana bread.  My pecan banana bread recipe has been passed down and perfected for generations and is truly the best banana bread I’ve ever had if I do say so myself 😉
