This is a variation of another Ginger Lopez recipe. Instead of canola oil, I use extra virgin olive oil and at the end I crush dried rosemary into the batter. Next time I will use even more rosemary and maybe some almond meal to give it a different texture. With banana bread, the more black and mushy the bananas the sweeter and the more banana flavored the bread will turn out. This recipe calls for 1 C. which is about two medium size bananas. This is such and easy recipe. You just throw all the ingredients together and mix it with a wooden spoon. After you make this once you will look forward to rotten bananas! Serve with cream cheese or butter.
