Banana bread isn’t fancy or impressive, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s the ultimate comfort food that fills your heart and home with warm goodness. And while you never need an excuse to make banana bread, it’s even more fitting to enjoy this baked good today – it’s National Banana Bread Day!
Along with creamy cheese filling the center, this recipe also uses sour cream to add just a touch of tanginess to this sweet bread.
If you just want a simple, yet ultimate banana bread, this is the best recipe to try. Enjoy it fresh out of the oven, or as a toasted slice later on.
Coconut oil, instead of butter, makes this loaf springy and soft. And that balances the crunchy streusel on top, made with flaked and shredded coconut, cinnamon and brown sugar.
Tart raspberries, rich chocolate chips and a dark brown sugar loaf all come together for a treat that carries you through the longest and hardest work week.
