I’ve been craving Banana Nut Bread for some reason. So what the Heck? It was time to dig out the old faithful recipe file. This is one the best and easiest Banana Bread recipes ever. It’s so easy and turns out moist full of amazing flavor! I’ve even added carrot cake frosting sprinkled with pecans to really solve cravings.
I love to take it on road trips and camping.
Prep Time 5 minutes, Cook Time 45 minutes = Total Time 50 minutes
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
¾ Cup Sugar
¾ Tsp. Baking Soda
½ Tsp. salt
3 Very Ripe Bananas
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 Cup Plain Yogurt
2 Large Eggs
6 Tbsp Butter Melted & Cooled
1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
Start with melting butter and allow it to start to cool down before mixing ingredients.
Adjust your oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees
Grease your bread pans and set them aside, or line your muffin pan with liners.
Peel and mash your bananas, I peel mine and chop off the ends. I then drop them in my mixer and let it mash them for me.
Add in next the yogurt, eggs, vanilla and the cooled off melted butter.
Whisk flour, sugar, and salt in large a bowl to combine seperately then add to the banana mixture. Or add everything to mixer one at a time.
Mix until well combined the batter will be lumpy and thick.
Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until loaf is golden brown.
Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick to see if it comes out clean
Cool in pan for 15 minutes and then transfer to wire rack.
*If making muffins bake them for about 15 minutes and check them*
Here’s some option ideas.
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Cup Nutella
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
