Cinnamon Roll Banana Bread

Cinnamon Roll Banana Bread is spectacular. No kidding. This really awesome bread has cinnamon chips, hazelnuts, bananas and a terrific cinnamon buttercream glaze drizzled over top. Yum. This tasty sweet bread has triple the cinnamon flavor with cinnamon and cinnamon chips in the bread and cinnamon in the icing. Plus, it doesn’t skimp out on sugar so it’s incredibly sweet just like cinnamon rolls! This bread is moist and delicious.

We had some friends who were moving into a new home a week ago that I wanted to take a meal too. As it happened, I had a bunch of bananas on hand that needed using up. I thought this bread would be perfect for breakfast. The nice thing about this recipe is it makes five small bread loaves, so I passed three of the loaves on to the folks I took the meal to and put the other two loaves in the freezer for later. It’s also a great recipe for bake sales, holiday baking, or special occasion brunches.

If you have a craving for cinnamon rolls, but don’t want all the work of a yeast bread recipe, then consider giving Cinnamon Roll Banana Bread a try. It will cure any sweet tooth desire and leave you wanting more!

It’s not always easy to find hazelnuts. When I saw them at the grocery store about a month ago I snatched up a couple of bags so I could use them for baking.
