Some smells just bring instant comfort. Banana Nut Bread is one of them for me. I remember coming home from elementary school and finding my mom in the kitchen whipping up a batch of our family favorite Banana Nut Bread. The savory cinnamon mixed with banana nutty goodness just calm the soul. There has been a lot going on the past couple of months with graduation, moving back home, accepting my first full-time job, traveling, family health, the list could go on. Sometimes for me, baking is almost a therapy for me to work through that struggle or trial and make something delicious that others can enjoy. Life is hard sometimes and we don’t always know how to explain each turn of events. Today I choose to focus on the blessings of this life as I trust that God is in control of all things. Together let’s seek to find the beauty in the everyday trials. Let’s make banana nut muffins that feed the soul.
These moist and hearty muffins smell as good as they taste! The bottoms of mine did get a little stuck to the wrapper so maybe butter/Pam the liners before putting in the batter. But the end result was phenomenal! In less than 30 minutes, you have homemade muffins that people will go bananas for. Feed your stomach and your soul today, bake something comforting.
