Raspberry Banana Bread

This Raspberry Banana Bread is a delicious bread with bananas and raspberries that is great for breakfast or dessert.

We are big bread people in my family.  My husband and I both love bread and we have passed that love onto our son.  I especially love dessert bread.  Banana Bread is one of my favorites.  I love how moist banana bread can be and how versatile it is.  You can add a lot of things to banana bread and make a tasty treat and its great plain too.

Because its summer and raspberries are in season, I decided to add raspberries to my favorite banana bread recipe.  This Raspberry Banana Bread was so delicious.  I really loved how moist the banana bread was.  Plus, it tasted fantastic and is a great summer treat that is great for breakfast or dessert.
I think the flavors of the raspberries and the banana went great together.  Especially the fact that raspberries are a little tart, add a great flavor to the bread that is not too sweet.  With my husband and son starting school again soon, this would be a great bread to make on the weekend and then you can have a great breakfast for the whole week.
This Raspberry Banana Bread has great flavor and I love the combination of the banana and raspberries. This is a great bread that we all enjoyed and that we will be making again! Enjoy!
