Tips and tricks:

Do not over bake your banana bread, because it will lose its moisture. It’s a good idea to check the bread 5 minutes earlier.  

Always use overripe bananas, it’s best when their skin is full of dark spots. The bread will be moister and banana flavor will be stronger.

Do not over mix.

In order to keep the bread moist and fresh, wrap it and keep in a well sealed container or a large zip lock bag, at a room temperature, no longer than 3-4 days, or refrigerated for 6-7 days. 

You can add walnuts, chocolate chips, raisins, dry cranberries, seeds…

Can this banana bread be frozen?

Yes, but it needs to be completely cooled. It might be a good idea to slice it first, because it will be easier to defrost it and take as much as you need. Wrap the slices and keep them in a well sealed container or a zip lock bag. The bread frozen this way, will be defrosted within few hours.
