Best Banana Nut Bread
Baked banana bread makes me so happy. I’m not in a bad mood when I know the banana bread is cooking in the oven. The aroma of nut bread fills my whole house and everyone knows something good is coming. It was moist and flavorful, with a little crunch from the toasted walnuts. If I’m not careful, I might eat the whole loaf. 😉
We love having delicious quick bread (yeast free) recipes on hand (like our Snickers Bread and Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread) and will be adding this recipe to that list.
I like to have a slice at breakfast or as a pick-me-up in the afternoon. Sometimes my family even eats it for dessert – just heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds and serve it with vanilla ice cream. delicious!
