Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and while store fronts bombard us with candy and chocolate, I prefer to make my own sweet treats.

One of my favorite treats to make this time of year is banana bread. It’s sweet, comforting, and can be eaten any time of the day as breakfast, a snack, or dessert. Even better than that though, it’s quick, easy to make, and is the perfect size to wrap up and give as a gift to teachers or coworkers. Plus, the ingredients are simple and most likely found in every cabinet without a trip to the store (a BIG plus in my house.)

My go-to recipe for banana bread is one that has been in my family for as long as I can remember, it has been at every family gathering no matter the size, and is a staple at the never missed coffee breaks when family comes to visit.
