My Favorite Banana Nut Bread Recipe

When I got married my sister-in-law gave me a recipe box with some of her favorite recipes. One recipe that she included was her Banana Nut Bread recipe. I tried it and for eight years it has been my go-to recipe for making banana nut bread. If you like to bake you probably have all or most of the ingredients sitting in your pantry already. This is also the recipe I keep handy when I have bananas sitting on my counter for a few days…which happens just about every week. Buying extra bananas is my excuse to indulge in my favorite Banana Nut Bread!

My Favorite Banana Nut Bread Recipe

1 ¾ cups Flour
¼ tsp. Baking Soda
2/3 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
¼ cup Vegetable oil
2 tsp. Baking Powder
½ tsp. salt
¾ cup Milk
1 cup Mashed ripe bananas (about 2 bananas)
½ cup Nuts, chopped (walnuts are great)
½ to 1 tsp. Cinnamon
Pam Nonstick Spray

Grease and dust small loaf pan.  Mix all ingredients.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you want to make mini-muffins like I often do then bake them for about 12 minutes.

Hope you enjoy this banana nut bread and muffin recipe as much as we do!
