Banana Almond Bread with Bacon in the Loaf Tin
How amazing does that bread look?! You guys are in for a double treat today: we're welcoming the lovely Jess from Hungry Harps who's sharing that delicious looking loaf.

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jess and my blog is Hungry Harps. I am so happy to be guest posting today at Anyonita Nibbles, sharing my Banana-Almond Bread with Bacon!

A little about me - since that is what this is all about! I am a 30-something stay at home Mom who lives in Northern California. My husband and I have 4 little ones, ages 5 months to 4 years, that keep me busy - especially in the kitchen! I enjoy cooking comfort food, using the least amount of ingredients possible and including cheese when I can. :) I have slight addictions to coffee, chocolate and Instagram.

I made this bread with ingredients that are favorites around my house - bananas for my sons, almonds for me and bacon for my geeky husband. The word geek is used with love and I encourage EVERYONE to geek out on something they love. :) Anyway, the flavors of this bread are great together and even my kids couldn't get enough.

  1. I never would have thought to put bacon in with banana bread. But I bet it tastes wonderful. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I've seen lots of versions of banana bread before, but never one with bacon! I'll have to give it a try once it gets cool enough to turn on the oven. :)

    1. It's such a neat tweak, right? I can't wait to make it! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This looks like some man food! My hubby would love this!
    Pinned it to try later!

  4. Wow. Adding bacon to banana bread is genius. Even though I have your blog in my feedly account - I first notice this post at Love in the Kitchen: Tuesday's Table. (Thought you should know).

    Thanks for the tasty treat!

    1. It is pure genius, isn't it, Michele? Jess has loads of great recipes like this over on her blog! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. This sounds like a great flavor combination. Am I reading the recipe correctly, that 1/4 Cup of the bacon and almonds each go in the bread and 3/4 Cup of each goes on top? Should that be reversed? I'm visiting from the 37th Avenue link party.
