You’ve all had bananas sitting on your counter that look as if they’re ready for the trash bin. But, not so fast. It’s January in Vermont and you’re stuck indoors with a bored toddler. Here’s what you can do: make banana bread. Be sure to have all of your ingredients ready, and then follow the simple recipe below. You can decrease the sugar by half and still have a yummy snack. (We put one loaf in the freezer and then gobbled up the other one.)
