Casey's Banana Walnut Bread

Dee Stillwell


My son Casey, 31, has never taken an interest in cooking or baking. Mom being a professional baker for most of his life, may have inhibited him. Or thought, why bother, mom will make it. : ) He recently bought himself a Ninja blender for making his protein shakes. He decided to try making banana bread from their cookbook. He changed it and used white whole wheat flour and cinnamon instead of lemon juice, because thats what we had. It turned out so good. I can honestly say it is better than any banana bread I have ever made. His g/f thought I had made it and didn't believe he had until she asked me. Way to go, Casey(our new official banana bread baker) hehe
