Bite-sized banana bread

These cute, little buns are big enough to satisfy your sweet tooth

I have a tremendous amount of respect for people who can have only one slice of banana bread. My “slices” of banana bread consist of roughly a quarter loaf, and who really only eats one slice? 

They’re cute, they’re tasty and as satisfying as an entire loaf. You could also just have one, but that’s up to you.

They’re relatively healthy, so if you do want to sweeten them add chocolate chips or raisins.
