Mile High Banana Bread

I love my husband!
One of my favorite things about being married is getting to spoil my husband by baking his favorite things. It has been awhile since I last baked for especially for him. In fact, I can’t remember the last time…. Luckily, I was able to amend that problem.
I know I have posted a half dozen Banana Bread recipes on this blog, and no two are alike. I can’t help it! I have a hard time sticking to recipes, especially when sticking to a recipe means having to go to the grocery store. Instead, make do with what ingredients I have. I have been baking gluten-free and dairy-free for long enough now that I can tell, based on a batters consistency if it will turn out or not. Surprisingly, I find baking at high altitude to be easier than baking in moisture laden Florida. (shrug) Maybe it’s easier… or maybe I’m just happier… Happiness and love, after all, are always the best ingredients!
