Last summer the girls and I would bake to fill the days. In Vegas somedays its just too hot to get outside and this would always be a fun away to burn some energy and teach the kids at the same time! One of our favorite recipes was this quick and easy banana bread.
Since the Coronavirus has us on lockdown for the next 30 days (and most of the world) I thought I would share this video we made. This is a quick and easy recipe that the kids can help with and you can enjoy after!
We used our Kitchenaid Mixer but you can use a bowl and whisk or hand held mixer. We get a lot of questions about the color of our mixer, so I just want to add here really quickly that we have the pistachio color 🙂
