Carrot Raisin Banana Bread

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Bananas and frugality are definitely a challenge for me. I have escaped the knowledge of buying just the right amount of bananas to be eaten before they become recipe ripe.  While I really enjoy eating bananas, after they become too ripe, they must be used in baking.

Carrot Raisin Banana Bread, different and delicious!

With a large bag of frozen bananas in our freezer, it was time to try another loaf of banana bread. Banana bread can be made in about a million ways, today we are adding carrots and raisins. And this one is a winner! Not too sweet and made with whole grains, I hope you like it as well as we do.
