Let me introduce you to the best breakfast I have had in quite some time. I love all things bananas and especially banana bread (as you can see based on the variety of recipes we've shared in the past).
I also eat at least one banana a day and it is always a part of my breakfast. So it is clear why I am raving about this bowl of goodness. It tastes like gooey banana bread fresh out of the oven. A mighty fine way to start the day if you ask me.
