This flavorful Banana Nut Bread is sure to leave you wanting more. Its rich banana and cinnamon flavor along with the crunchy nuts is perfect for breakfast or even just a quick snack!
The other day I made those banana nut muffins out of the bag for my nephew Edward and I thought I could make something that tasted even better than those and even be homemade at the same time.
So I went to the kitchen and checked to see if we had all the ingredients and in my opinion, the best banana bread is made with over-ripened bananas, the one that have black spots all over.
But every time I eat or make Banana Nut Bread, I always think there’s not enough banana flavor in it. So I was following one of my mom’s old recipes and decided to use and extra banana and extra cinnamon to bring out that flavor.
I swear, this Banana Nut Bread is so savory and it’ll fill your stomach. And the best way to eat is by spreading some butter on it after either warming in up in the toaster or microwave and now you have a warm flavorful snack of the best Banana Nut Bread.
Some of my favorite memories of my mom include sharing snacks or desserts with her that we made together in the kitchen and banana bread happens to be one of them. The entire time I was making this recipe I couldn’t stop thinking about her and missing her but I’m glad she left me with such good memories and skills in the kitchen.
The Banana Nut Bread has also been Edward-approved! He loves taking pictures and he loves eating food so this is his favorite part of the day! He said it tasted extra good because of the bananas.
