We don’t appreciate the goodness of ripe bananas until they come together to make banana bread. And how delicious do they become? So delicious.

But the hero here is the humble banana.

This sweet banana walnut bread recipe is the ideal option for a fruit-bread recipe.

The Best Banana Nut Bread Recipe is the One You Can Versatile

There are so many things you can add (or omit) to or from banana bread! I love the addition of chopped walnuts, but I know that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Especially when dealing with nut allergies, you can replace them with chocolate chips. Or raisins. And if allergies aren’t a concern, dare I say, add them all in there!

Are you looking for a different kind of nut to add in there? You could reach for pecans or hazelnuts. You could even make Hawaiian banana bread that combines ripe bananas with coconut and pineapple. Yum.

Seriously, the options with this excellent recipe dish are endless. But if you’re looking for a simple, tried, and tested great recipe that you can add to your archives, this delicious banana bread with walnuts is perfect.

A Good Banana Bread cuts back on sugar!

Big-brand coffee shops sell banana bread and other cake-like bread options in their shops, and when trying them out, I found that they were so sweet, I couldn’t drink a coffee with them.

This is a very moist banana nut bread recipe similar to coffee shop bread, but without unnecessary ingredients. My recipe doesn’t need a lot of added sweetness since bananas are already sweet. While this recipe is a dessert, the sugar amount is a great way to cut back on those calories and carbohydrates.

To make the best banana bread recipe, you will need:

Dry ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup flour (all-purpose flour is a good option here)
  • 2/3 cup of white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons milk

You could also add vanilla extract for a hint of flavor.

Flavor additions for banana bread:

  • 1/2 cup chopped crunchy walnuts
  • 2-3 mashed bananas

The bake time on this recipe is 1 hour. You’ll smell this easy recipe becomes a real treat within that hour while you wait. When the bread is ready, don’t forget to transfer it to a wire rack and let it cool to room temperature. I like to enjoy it while it’s slightly warm with a cup of tea. You can even have it the next day since it stays fresh for several days.
