Super Simple Banana Nut Bread

Banana nut bread - yum!
At this rate, I'll be lucky to post a cake a month! Well, my intentions were good but life got in the way. And I tanked on a few pounds (not from eating cake, fyi) so didn't feel like having regular extra desserts. But all excuses aside, we ended up with some overripe bananas, so...

Want a super simple banana nut bread recipe? Well, look no further! Try this delicious treat the next time you have a few overripe bananas. And if you don’t have nuts, or just don’t like them, go ahead and leave them out.

  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • ⅓ c melted butter
  • ¾ c sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 t baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1½ c flour
  • ½ c walnuts, chopped

  1. Mix together mashed bananas and melted butter and then stir in sugar, egg and vanilla.
  2. Stir baking soda and salt into flour and then stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
  3. Fold nuts into batter and spread in a greased loaf pan.
  4. Bake 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees F.
This is a favorite at our house and rates about 8 out of 10. (Not sure if that’s because it’s so darn good or if it’s maybe just that much better than eating the overripe bananas!)
