Do you have some extra bananas that are brown and need to be pitched soon? Or do you have 2 cups of spinach left in your Costco sized container that you are ready to get rid of your fridge? Or maybe you need a way to get your kids to eat green veggies? Or do you need to come up with a dish to take to a kid’s party? Or are you looking for a fabulous vegan banana bread recipe? Or maybe you just need a reason to bake something?
What ever you need, this banana bread will take care of it. You can call it Shrek bread, or Monster bread or St.Patrick’s Day Lucky Leprechaun bread. You could call it Hulk bread or Slime bread. You can call it anything because you kids will love it.
Other good news for those who prefer, it’s vegan. No eggs. No milk. No butter.
