Homemade Banana Bread Warms Heart And Home (NAPSA) - Nothing adds a more inviting feeling to your home than the aroma of banana bread baking in your oven. This much-loved aroma is known for conjuring up nostalgic images of family, happiness and love.

In fact, the only thing more tantalizing than the aroma is the irresistible taste of a warm slice of banana bread.

For a new twist on this classic recipe, add Post Selects Banana Nut Crunch cereal to the banana bread batter. In addition to enhancing the banana flavor, the cereal adds both texture and a creative touch to the delicious loaf.

Whether prepared for brunch, snacks, or dessert, Double Banana Bread is a great way to show family and friends that you care.
