My boys love zucchini and banana bread. So a while back I found a new banana bread recipe using buttermilk, so I decided to try it and loved it. Well, fast forward to this week and I couldn't find it. So I did a google search and found a new recipe and it is exorbitantly better than the first one I found. These are amazing.
I call them muffin mans because that is what Tab, my 3 year old calls them. If I were to call it banana bread he would whine that he doesn't want banana bread, but that he wants muffin mans. Ever since he first heard the "Do you know the muffin man?" song, he has called them this. So I obligingly make them into muffins and a loaf, which to get him to eat we call muffin man bread. My kid is weird.
