Banana Spread

I recently saw a blogger I follow talking about how she wished there was such a thing a "banana butter" because she loves mashed bananas and I thought "what?! I have doing a banana spread for ages!". I thought it was super common though so I never really bothered to share. So here it is! My Banana Spread. I usually will eat it on something, in something or by itself if I am feeling crazy. It is super yummy, and super easy to make. Plus you could freeze it and have an ice cream type treat!
