Sourdough Banana Bread

I have recently endeavored to make my own sourdough starter and have for the most part been using the King Arthur Flour website for all my recipes. However, one of the kids recently asked me to make banana bread from some of the brown bananas on the counter and I wondered if there was a sourdough recipe. Voila! I found this lovely recipe from Cultures for Health. I have so far made if from discard, but tonight I am making it with actual starter. We shall see how it goes!
