Easy Sour Cream Banana Bread

Recipe by BeePeachy

This recipe ALWAYS comes through! Everyone always loves it and when I give the bread as a gift, I’m always asked for the recipe! It’s easy to make, doubles well AND freezes well! The *secret* to a super moist and flavorful bread is to use the sour cream (generous portions) AND to use very ripe (we’re talking black on the outside and super soft and aromatic on the inside) bananas! I make the bread as loaves, large muffins and mini-muffins and each turns out perfectly yummy! Enjoy!

Way too much sugar for my taste, so I cut it down to 1/2 cup, added a little extra vanilla and 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts. Also, instead of sour cream I used greek yogurt. Thanks for the base recipe though, it was a great starting point!
