Thanks to a splash of bourbon, this whole wheat banana bread has all the warm flavors you expect from banana bread with the bonus of being more nutritious.
When making the batter for this banana bread, all I kept thinking about was the gooey inside of a Cinnabon. If you’ve eaten a Cinnabon, then you know exactly what I’m talking about, and let me tell you that the batter for this bread smells almost exactly like that! While the cinnamon and nutmeg obviously provide some of those warm, wintery smells, it’s the bourbon that really gives a depth of flavor and scent. So you can imagine that my number one recommendation when making this bread is not to leave the bourbon out! Baking this for kiddos? No worries as the alcohol cooks off during baking.
