STARBUCKS BANANA LOAF

My usual morning routine before work consists of going to Starbucks and grabbing my chai tea latte and banana loaf. Lately I’ve been making my chai tea latte at home using the Tazo Chai Tea Latte Concentrate. Which then made me wonder…why don’t I just make the banana loaf at home?? After numerous trial and error, I’ve finally come up with the banana loaf recipe along with a personal twist 🙂
