I’m taking some time off the next few weeks to spend with my family and our new bundle of joy. In the meantime, I’ve set up a few posts ahead of time to share. This cookie butter banana bread has been a looooong time coming — but was worth the wait. A warning: be prepared to go full-on Cookie Monster on this bread once you get a waft of it.
What is this? Two banana-based recipes in a row?? Surely a food blogger wouldn’t allow this redundancy! Except that one involves pie and the other (hint: this one) involves cookie butter so I think we can all agree: Mmmk, yeah, two banana recipes in a row is A-OK.
This recipe has been a thought bubble (I originally typed “buttle” — what? SLEEP DEPRIVATION YOU SLAY ME) in my head for a really, really, ridiculously long period of time. And I don’t really know why I kept putting it off; though it probably has something to do with the fact that I’m allergic to naners and I knew this bread would be amazeballs and it would be torture of tortures to bake it and smell it and watch my husband eat slice after slice AND then declare it may be the best bread I’ve ever made. Spoiler alert: All of the above happened. Harrumph (I mean, hooray!). At least I could console myself by eating spoonfuls of cookie butter.34
