Banana Walnut Bread – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Unlike most peopole, bananas are not my thing.  If you haven’t noticed I don’t have a single banana recipe on my blog until now because they’re not an ingredient I bake with that often.  However, I know how much people love bananas and I thought this easy Banana Walnut Bread would be a great place to start.

Making a simple quick bread with browning bananas seems like the right thing to do and obviously a delicious option.  A creamy softened banana acts like a flavor agent with all its natural oils and becomes the highlight of this bread.  I do love walnuts and the combination of bananas and walnuts has been a hit ever since I can remember.  The richness of good walnuts accentuates the crumb and makes it one nice slice of bread to enjoy for either breakfast or at snacktime throughout the day.

You could also toast a thickly sliced piece of this bread and slather salted butter or cream cheese over it, which always seems like a good idea.  Either option would be delightful — especially with a good cup of coffee.
