    This looks delicious. My children love banana bread so I keep a stash of overripe bananas in the freezer which works brilliantly (and much better than throwing them away!)

    It’s baking as I type! Smells good! I tried with Splenda instead of the sugar because of my diabetes. I’ll let you know how it turns out!
