Good Morning! As I bundle my kiddos up this morning to head off to school, I am wishing that the weather felt more like Spring. It’s still so cold and snowy here, so I am making the best of it! Baking always puts me in a great mood, and with ripe (almost black) bananas sitting over on my counter, I knew a few loaves of banana bread were definitely in order. I decided to brighten up that banana bread and my day by adding these plump, juicy raspberries to the batter! The result is a moist and beautiful Raspberry Banana Bread that is perfect for breakfasts or snacks!
I’ve been grabbing several packages of berries at the grocery store lately because they just look so good! My four kiddos can easily eat 1 or 2 packages for snacks, so managing to have some available for myself when I am looking for some can sometimes be difficult. Not with this simple recipe! Everyone will get their fair share of berries with a slice of this yummy bread. It tastes great with a cup of coffee or even a cold glass of milk!
Fresh, juicy raspberries are gently folded into a smooth banana and buttermilk batter to give you the prettiest and tastiest loaf of bread! I love the bright red colors throughout these loaves and each bite gives you that a delicious fresh raspberry & banana flavor.
If you are sick of the Winter weather and want to surprise your family with something different for breakfast or a snack, give this recipe a try! You can even freeze the extra loaves for later, it freezes just beautifully! If you are experiencing some yucky Winter weather, a fresh loaf of this bread would also make for a nice gift for a friendly neighbor to help brighten their day!
