Deliciously moist Snickerdoodle Banana Bread with a cinnamon sugar addition throughout! Using only one bowl, this is quick to prepare and a favorite with all!
This week, its Teacher Appreciation week at my kids schools! Since I take any excuse I can to get in the kitchen, I decided to whip up a batch of my Snickerdoodle Banana Bread! Not only is it simple to make, but everyone loves a good banana bread, right?
I typically like to keep extra bananas in my freezer. Just as they are getting too brown for my kids liking, I toss them in the freezer for a later date! I pulled a few out yesterday morning and let them thaw a bit. Once I did some chores around the house, they were good and ready to toss into the batter!
If you don’t like the cinnamon sugar combo, simply omit from this bread and you’ll still have a perfectly moist banana bread! But, I recommend trying the cinnamon sugar addition!
I was able to bake 4 mini loaves of this bread, which was great because there are 3 teachers to bake for, and we got to enjoy one ourselves!
I wrapped each loaf in plastic wrap and stuck it in a treat bag! I printed tags that said “I am bananas for you as my teacher! Thanks for being you!” and attached them to each loaf. The teachers all LOVED the bread and thought the tag was adorable! Lots of thank you notes came home the next day!
You can make this for breakfast, a snack, a sweet treat in the evening, or freeze for later! Its the perfect gift for friends, neighbors, family, or teachers!
Using only one bowl, clean up is a breeze! Enjoy and let me know what you think of my Snickerdoodle Banana Bread if you try it!
