Banana bread is a great way to start the day! Check out the tips below and don’t miss these tasty ways to incorporate Darling Citrus into your morning sweet treat.

Banana Bread Tips

  1. The riper, the better! Ripe bananas make the best banana bread so this is a great way to use up those bananas on the counter that have already turned brown.
  2. If your bananas aren’t quite ripe yet, you can use the paper bag method! Place your unripe bananas in a brown paper bag for 2-3 days, preferably with already ripe or overly ripe fruit, to speed up the ripening process!
  3. Banana bread made with oils is typically more moist than those made with butter!
  4. Applesauce is a great substitute for eggs and dairy if you’re aiming to find a way to make vegan or dairy-free banana bread!
  5. Last but not least, mix-it-up by adding extra ingredients like nuts, nut butter, seeds, chocolate, spices, coconut flakes, or Darling Citrus to make the bread your own!

Add Some Citrus To Your Banana Bread!
