Banana Bread With Walnuts

Banana Bread

I love banana bread, so I intentionally buy more bananas than I can eat in a week, so I have some left over to make this tasty bread. The bread is moist and delicious. I used to hate nuts in my bread, but have grown to love them. The walnuts provide a healthy crunch. What’s your favorite extra in banana bread?

  5. Bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean
