I had a ton of overripe bananas that no one was going to eat, and I do not like wasting so I had to do something with them! What better way to eat them all than to make banana bread with them? This recipe is slightly different from other banana breads because I chose to use coconut sugar rather than regular granulated sugar. It’s healthier and gives a deeper, nuttier flavor.

FUN FACT: Did you know that bananas contain two types of fiber that are present at different types of ripeness? They contain both Pectin in a ripe banana, and resistant starch in unripe bananas.
