This is the best version of banana bread I've ever made... It has granola added to make it extra tasty!

This was good but not the "best" I've ever had. I used Trader Joe's Pecan Praline Granola. I had very over ripe and tasty bananas but found the bread plain and flavorless besides the banana. The instructions step 2 should say Mix the first "seven" ingredients in a large bowl. Thanks for the recipe. Made for Alphabet Soup Game.
