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

- 1/3 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)

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.
Put 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.
