Banana Split Bread
Ever have a banana split for breakfast? Combining bananas, cherries, walnuts, and chocolate chips, this banana bread recipe takes its inspiration from the frozen treat—minus the ice cream and whipped cream, of course. However, nothing says you can’t add a dollop of whipped cream to a slice for breakfast or add a scoop of ice cream and a dollop of whipped cream for a tasty dessert.😋

1/4 cup chopped dried cherries
2/3-cup melted butter
