How to make apple banana bread

This is a kid-friendly banana bread recipe that adults love too.

To make it, simply stir all of the ingredients together in a bowl – no yeast or stand mixer required.

Smooth the batter into a loaf pan, and bake until the banana bread is soft and fluffy and the entire kitchen smells like cinnamon sugar.

Leftovers taste even better the next day, and you can also freeze the loaf for a healthy snack any time you’re craving homemade banana bread.

Recipe Note: I usually leave the peel on the apple, but feel free to peel it before dicing if you prefer.
