I love recipes that make use of overripe produce that might otherwise be destined for the garbage bin.  This sour cream Banana bread is a great recipe for the frugal cooks out there. It makes a great snack and easy breakfast on the go.Sour Cream Walnut Banana bread

Sour Cream Banana Bread

This banana bread starts as a thick, tangy batter full of mashed bananas, and comes out of the oven with a golden-brown crust and a crunchy texture because of the chopped walnuts.

The sour cream gives the bread a tang and makes it very moist too.  With Mother’s Day coming up, this sour cream banana bread would be great to make ahead so that mom have breakfast (or brunch) in bed!.
