The holidays are upon us! Let the baking begin! Banana Bread is a classic treat to enjoy in the morning with breakfast, as an afternoon snack along with a cup of tea or even as a delicious addition to your dessert table.
Today we are taking the traditional Banana Bread and kicking it up a notch in this hearty Banana Bread Cobbler.
This post is brought to you by Truvia Baking Blend.
The rich buttery base is topped with sliced bananas, then topped with a crunchy topping with oats and pecans. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This recipe took me back to memories of Banana Bread baking in my Mom’s kitchen. However, this recipe is lightened up with Truvia Baking Blend in the crust as well as Brown Sugar in the topping.
