I added a crumb topping with slivered almonds, coconut, and fresh nutmeg- Amazing!
I've never like banana bread either, but this is the best recipe I've ever tried. My family and friends beg me to make it...it will be a regular at my house from now on. Putting it in my recipe box! Thank you Land O Lakes.
My family and I have never really loved banana bread until I made this recipe. This is by far the best banana bread recipe I've ever made. The orange zest and coconut are an excellent addition. I also added walnuts which made it even better. This will be in my recipe box as much loved recipe. Thank you, Land O Lakes.
