Ingredients You'll Need:

For the Banana Bread:
- 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- A pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

For the CBD Boost:
- 20mg Turf Origins Citrus Spice 600mg Bitters, add more or less as desired (there is 20mg per whole dropper)


1. **Preheat and Prep:** Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 4x8 inch (10x20 cm) loaf pan and set it aside.

2. **Mash the Bananas:** In a mixing bowl, peel and mash the ripe bananas with a fork until they form a smooth, creamy consistency.

3. **Mix Dry Ingredients:** In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and the array of delightful spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and allspice. These spices will give your banana bread that quintessential fall flavor.

4. **Cream the Butter and Sugars:** In a separate bowl, cream together the melted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. The result should be a light, fluffy mixture.

5. **Add the Egg and Vanilla:** Beat in the egg and stir in the vanilla extract. This gives your banana bread that lovely, comforting aroma.

6. **Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:** Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Stir until just incorporated. Be careful not to overmix; you want a tender bread, not a tough one.

7. **Fold in the Bananas:** Gently fold the mashed bananas into the batter until they are evenly distributed.

8. **Add the CBD:** Here's where the magic happens. Add Turf Origins Citrus Spice 600mg Bitters to the batter. The citrusy and spicy notes of the bitters will complement the warm spices in the bread, creating a harmonious flavor profile. 

9. **Add Nuts or Chocolate Chips:** If you desire some extra texture and flavor, fold in the chopped nuts or chocolate chips at this stage.

10. **Bake:** Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for about 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

11. **Cool and Enjoy:** Let your CBD-infused Fall Banana Bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and savor the flavors of fall, enhanced with the calming touch of CBD.

Baking a Fall CBD Banana Bread using Turf Origins Citrus Spice 600mg Bitters is not only a delightful way to celebrate the autumn season but also a unique opportunity to explore the potential benefits of CBD in your culinary creations.
