Classic Banana Bread

There are so many ways to whip up a banana bread and I’m constantly changing the way I make this. This version is the one I’m most satisfied with. It’s light and fluffy, not overly sweet and a relatively healthy treat. What I’ve noticed is the riper the bananas, the sweeter and more moist the bread is. It’s dairy free too which is a bonus for many who can’t tolerate dairy.
