We have been using this old family recipe for banana for a few generations now, but Ethan I made some changes. Some of the changes are to make the banana bread more healthy like using apple sauce instead of margarine and reducing the sugar. Some changes we made because we thought it would be even more yummy like adding chocolate chips, cinnamon and cranberries.
