Notes

This banana bread is always a hit and will usually be gone before it gets into the fridge. I usually let it sit on the counter covered for a day or two before moving it into the fridge. But in most cases, it never does. This bread is my favourite snack any time of the day. I enjoy it with a glass of milk or chai tea just before bed:) 
It is great to bring to work to share with your co-workers or to any potluck. 
Storage
This banana bread will last on the counter for 2 days. After that, it can stay in the fridge for another 2 days then I would recommend cutting it into slices, wrapped in individual saran wraps then onto a Ziploc bag and freezing it for up to 3 months.
What kind of bananas to use
For best results, use over-ripe bananas, ones that are squishy. When you have a banana sitting on the counter and almost going bad, remove the skin, put them in a Ziploc bag, and freeze them for later use. When ready to use, take out whatever amount you need and thaw it out on the counter. 
Variations
You can add 1/2 cup of pecans, dried fruit or chocolate chips 
Swap out the sugar for monk fruit/erythritol sweetener, or brown sugar.
Use half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat for a healthier version. 
You can use the recipe for banana muffins. Just scoop the batter into muffin tins instead.
