Mini Date Banana Bread Bites

 I’m still a bit saddened over the loss my Dallas Cowboys had on Sunday.

I mean, we are America’s team.

I’m sure you heard or saw your facebook blow up with tweets from angry DC fans the moment those refs made that call.

That one freaking call…cost us the whole damn game.

Okay, rant over.

Always next year.

Let’s talk about more important stuff.

Foooooood.

Last Sunday wasn’t only a football watching day…it was a banana bread making day.

Y’all….

this stuff is sweetened with date puree.
