Apple Banana Bread

I love the fall because it’s pretty hard to beat a fresh-off-the-tree apple and of course I find lots of yummy ways to bake them up too!

This recipe has two of my favorite fruits— Apples and Banana’s.    I love them both so combining them in a delicious and healthy loaf was a no brainer…

    Hi, i was just getting ready to bake this and i noticed step #3 .In a medium mixing bowl combine flours, sugars, baking soda, salt, cinnamon; stir to combine.. … but in the ingredient list it does not list BAKING SODA or an amount……. so is it needed?

    • Ruthie says:

      Hi Lacey… Yikes! So sorry… I try to catch my errors but I’m always glad when people let me know so I can fix them 🙂 there is 1 1/2 tsp baking soda in the recipe. I will fix it now and thanks a million for letting me know. xoxo~ Ruthie
