Banana Bread Recipe

The Best Walnut Banana Bread Recipe

Walnuts are my favorite baking nuts (next to pecans in a pecan pie...) and I think they are great in banana bread. I also really like this recipe as it uses whole wheat flour. With the amount of banana bread I'm consuming with testing recipes for the site I can feel a bit better about adding a 'bit of health' where I'm able to.


1/2 cup of butter
2 eggs beaten
1 cup of sugar
1 cup mashed ripe banana(2 to 3 medium)
1 cup whole wheat flour 1 cup all purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup hot water
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

  1. Heat oven to 325
  2. Melt the butter and add to suger in a large mixing bowl and blend in
  3. Add beaten eggs and bananas - blend until smooth
  4. Add both flours, salt and baking soda
  5. Stir in hot water and walnuts
  6. Place batter into two small loaf pans
  7. Bake 60 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan. Complete cooling on a wire rack.
Makes two small sized loaves
