Homemade Quick Bread

Fresh from the oven and just in time for the upcoming holiday season, Fall is my favorite time to bake! It is rare that I get the chance to take my time and enjoy cooking, but baking helps to slow me down and enjoy the experience. To be honest, this was the most relaxing Saturday night I’ve had in a long time.
With the baby in bed and Chef Phil at work, I was able to bake this amazing quick bread and relax with a few of my favorite things: a pumpkin spice candle, a cup of chamomile tea, and past episodes of my favorite show The Real Housewives.
And then I was able to enjoy a warm slice of this yummy bread fresh from the oven before heading to bed.
(It’s the little things, right?)
Vegan Coconut Banana Bread
I am certainly not a vegan, but sometimes when I am in the mood to bake something, I have no eggs!
I don’t buy eggs from the grocery store anymore now that we have our own flock of hens, so I do not always have eggs in the refrigerator all the time, but that’s OK. This coconut banana bread tastes just as amazing without the eggs and is just as easy to prepare.
