So I knew that I wanted to mix some banana with my favorite candies.
The first thing I thought of was cookies…but then I had an intense craving for banana bread.
I opened the bag of candies, even had a handful headed toward my mouth,
when I realized that I could have my bread and my candies together still!
If I can make Twix Banana Bread, why not Almond Joy banana bread?
I am so glad that I made this because
after tasting it…I have to say it is one of my favorite breads.
Dense, banana-ey, full of coconut, and yummy candy…
anyone want to come over for coffee and help me devour the rest???
