Healthy Thanksgiving Options the Whole Family Will Love
Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday. My dad makes his yearly pilgrimage out west and I get to cook a feast for mine and my boyfriendâ€™s family.

Autumn Spiced Banana Bread
Banana bread is one of my favorite things to bake. Itâ€™s simple and you can do so many different flavor profile variations. Sometimes I add peanut butter; sometimes I add other fruit, like blueberries. Itâ€™s very versatile. Banana bread is also one of those treats that doesnâ€™t feel like a cheat because it can be homemade and remain healthy. So I figured with fall just around the corner, Iâ€™d give you the recipe for my Autumn Banana Bread. And of course my recipe has a few ingredients swapped out… get used to it now.
