Another Mom recipe! This time, for Butterscotch Banana Bread. In May 2003, when this recipe was first made, it was “very good.” And I was about to graduate from high school. #old

Sweet spiced banana bread with butterscotch chips! A fun new twist on everyone's favorite "use up the bananas on the counter" recipe. :)

I have no memory of the original baking of this banana bread, but I do know I’ve made it several times over the last nine years since Ben and I started dating, were engaged, and have been married. Ben looooves butterscotch flavored things, so I’m always looking for the next butterscotch treat to surprise him with! 🙂 In this banana bread, the caramel-y flavor of the butterscotch chips pairs perfectly with the classically spiced banana bread. What a great match! But let’s be real… is there ANYTHING that doesn’t mix in well with banana bread? Pretty much… no. 🙂 Enjoy!
