Raise your hand if you use peanut butter and maple syrup in your banana bread recipe. I didn't think so.

The Mayo Clinic, the world-famous hospital in Minnesota has taken an all-American classic and developed a new take on one of your favorite smells that comes out of the kitchen.

YUM: Royal Fork Gives Sioux Falls A Gift…Its Tomato Soup Recipe

Homemade banana bread has been a staple for generations long before us. Handed down by just about every grandmother in every family.

What makes the Mayo Clinic recipe so special? For this particular bread, you will need a slightly different flour. But NO sugar. Nope, you'll be using pure maple syrup instead. And peanut butter.

And if you're like me, sometimes you make your own modifications. Like adding walnuts.

I can't wait to try this.
