Sourdough Banana Bread

I love experimenting with my sourdough starter and now I know why people call their starter there baby! It is a true love to be able to make your starter from scratch and watching it grow.
I had some extra ripe bananas laying around and wanted to make a tasty sourdough banana bread. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did! Please check out the Greek olive oil company that I feature here! Theofanis extra virgin olive oil, local olive oil from Sacramento. I love to bake with olive oil and this is one to try.

  1. Banana and bread is an awesome combination…. Sometimes I cut the bananas to thin round pieces and stuff it inside the bread toast along with condensed milk…. For me, its heaven….!!!
