Cinnamon Banana Bread.

I knew that I was going to be slammed with lots of assignments & shifts at work this week (spring break, i miss you!) so I wrote this post on Sunday night for you guys!

I made an amazing loaf of banana bread on Sunday that is definitely a must-make.

This is my favorite banana bread I've made to date! 

I immediately enjoyed a slice hot out of the oven with a smear of almond butter.. and then promptly went back for a second piece because it was so good!
