Butter and honey slathered banana coconut bread anyone? Something about home baked banana bread screams comfort food to us. We especially love this bread with a generous slab of butter and a healthy smear of lehua blossom or kiawe blossom honey. It makes a great grab-n-go breakfast, a sweet afternoon snack, or a late night nibble. It’s low in added sugar and naturally sweet from the bananas too, making a kid-friendly treat as well. Bonus points for making the whole house smell like a tropical bakery.
