Looking for something to do with those over ripe bananasBanana bread is scrumptious and so easy to make. It seems that every time I go to the grocery store that the bananas are either really green or already have brown spots on them.

This was the case when I went to the store on Saturday, but I picked up a bunch anyway because I like to eat a banana after my morning run. Unfortunately, after my run this morning, I noticed that my newly bought bananas were looking very sad! 😦 So I pulled out this recipe for a wonderfully moist and delicious bread.

The sour cream is the secret ingredient that keeps this bread super moist and what also makes this recipe stand out from other banana bread recipes. This is a very versatile recipe. You can add raisins, nuts, or even chocolate chips. No matter which mix in you choose, you are left with a delightfully moist and delectable treat!
