Fall-tastic Cinnamon Nutmeg Banana Bread Recipe

I love bananas and nearly always pick up a bunch while at the store, but I don’t always get around to eating them…and so they brown. They brown and brown and when they are about 10 seconds away from attracting pesky little fruit flies I mash them up and make banana bread.

What? You don’t have seasonal banana bread recipes? How can this be?

In the winter I make this delightful chocolate marbled banana bread. In the spring, I make a nice light, fluffy bread (I will have to blog that recipe this next year). I’ve relied on this super-yummy coconut banana bread with lime glaze from the Our Best Bites girls for a couple years now.

I digress…Back to my fall-tastic cinnamon nutmeg banana bread.

This bread is full of goodness, but it’s the cinnamon and nutmeg that really give this recipe its fall flavor.

Cinnamon nutmeg banana bread recipe

The first time I made this recipe I actually had thought I burned it, but really the cinnamon and nutmeg just create a darker bread than you might typically be used to. Don’t worry when it’s a touch darker. Wait until you can poke it with a toothpick and have it come out clean before you pull it out of the oven.

    • Kathleen, it looks like the recipe was deleted from my site. I am going to try to remember to pull this out for you when I am at home! xoxo Tauni
