White Chocolate Cherry Banana Bread

I’m not crazy about bananas, but I do love a good loaf of banana bread! Growing up, my mom would often bake banana bread. I love eating mine warm with some butter on top.

This week, the Friday Recipe Club theme is bananas! It’s National Banana Bread day on February 23rd so I decided to do my own version of banana bread with a little twist. I made mine with white chocolate (my fave!) and cherries.

If you prefer regular milk chocolate, feel free to replace the white chocolate with some milk or dark chocolate instead.
