I've had this recipe for so long, I can't even remember where I got it.

This is a very forgiving recipe. Kid friendly. Measurements don't have to be exact and you can just dump everything in the same bowl. Some times I throw in a handful of coconut flakes, some chopped almonds, or even use mandarin orange juice and rind. Loaves freeze beautifully. A good recipe for gift giving at Christmas time.

How to Make Banana Orange Nut Bread


  • 1Combine all ingredients (except raw sugar) in large bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • 2Spray non stick 4 mini loaf pans with PAM. Each mini loaf pan will hold about 2/3 cup mixture.
  • 3Sprinkle raw sugar on top.
  • 4Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 30-35 minutes. Test centers with toothpick or wooden skewer, it should come out clean.
  • 5If tops get too brown during baking, cover lightly with foil. (This usually happens when I bake 2 larger loaves for 45-50 min.) PS: I found using dark pans make the sides and bottom get too brown.
