During the summer months I try to avoid using the oven/stove on a daily basis. It just heats up the apartment and, honestly, I hate eating heavy, hot food when it’s warm outside. Enter: banana bread. Yes, you have to use the oven to bake it but it will last you all week and it’s perfect in the morning with a bowl of mixed fruit. I used this recipe and decided to add chocolate chips to appease the husbands sweet tooth. This is our new summer breakfast staple and I plan on trying a few other variations to mix things up.
