Banana Bread with Pecans

Writing this post is driving me bananas. Perhaps the one-bowl recipe is too simple to create a story around it. Instead of forcing creativity, this will be a short post. With this basic recipe using over ripe bananas rapidly turning black, “make it your own” by adding another nut, cranberries, or chocolate chips. Serve with a good cup of coffee or loose-leaf tea. Like this post, making the bread takes a few minutes, and it’ll be ready within an hour.
