Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe



My daughter begged for a huge bunch on bananas last week, with promises that she would eat every single one of them. Well, 6 days later, guess what? We had 4 very ripe bananas left, that were not going to get eaten. I hate wasting money so I had to think of something to do with them! It occurred to me that I have never tried to make banana nut bread! Now I have to admit something, I am NOT a baker. I don’t have a fancy mixer (although I do stare at them longingly in the store..) and I love my cakes from a box. When I looked up banana nut bread recipes a lot of them called for “cutting in cold butter” and other things that just weren’t going to work for me, and I got to thinking that it probably doesn’t for a lot of other people either, so I wanted to share this Super Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe with you guys! It takes about 5 minutes of prep, and 25 minutes in the oven, that’s it!

Here is what you will need to make this Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe:

  •  4 very ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nut of your choice (I used pecans, because that is what I had lol)

Here is how to make this Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe:



First, Peel and mash your bananas in a large bowl. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.



Next, add in your egg, sugar, salt, baking soda, butter and vanilla. Stir to mix well.



Then, Add in your flour a little a a time and stir. Mix really well to make sure it is all together.



Then, add in your nuts and stir. Pour in a loaf pan (I suggest putting parchment paper down first, easier clean up) in bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.



Last, take your bread out and allow to cool. Slice, and serve!

This recipe was a huge hit in my house, and I’ve already had to make 2 more loaves for my family!



What I love most about this Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe is that it proves made from scratch recipes don’t have to be hard! What is your favorite bread recipe? Let us know in the comments below!

    I was looking for a new recipe for banana bread and came across this one. So easy and absolutely delicious! I have to admit that I mistakenly forgot the sugar in my first batch (duh!) But it was still good! Thanks for this recipe!

    Can i use brown sugar instead of white sugar? Will it makes any difference regarding the taste of the finish product and its measurement?

  8. Misty says

    My bread came out pretty sticky and I cooked at 350 degrees for 45 min. almost like it wasn’t quite cooked all the way through.

  9. Linley says

    Great easy recipe! I didn’t have a loaf pan so I used a muffin tin and baked at 350 for 20 minutes, came out perfect. Thank you!

  10. Girl Reinvented says

    As advertised, this banana nut bread was super easy ( I made it with a whisk as shown in the picture…didn’t need an electric blender) and it was delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!
