This cinnamon sugar crusted banana bread is perfect moist banana bread with a cinnamon swirl through out and crunchy cinnamon sugar edges!
I love me some banana bread and when I have bananas that are starting to get over ripe I squeal a little bit inside because I’m so excited to be able to make banana bread! I usually put chocolate chips in it, but this cinnamon sugar crusted banana bread is another amazing alternative!

The cinnamon sugar flavor goes great with the banana bread, the cinnamon sugar swirl, plus the cinnamon sugar crust on the outside. Especially the crust, it adds a delicious crunchiness that I love and I know you will too.
I just love a warm slice of banana bread fresh from the oven, topped with butter!
