Bacon Banana Bread

This delicious sweet-and-salty banana bread makes a lovely breakfast or a mid-afternoon treat. Allow your bananas to overripen before baking, which will make them sweeter. If they’re too ripe for eating and streaked with brown or black marks, they’re probably just right for banana bread! With crumbles of uncured bacon from Coleman Natural, you’ll get a bit of that salty goodness in each bite.
