Banana Nut Bread

Beth Pierce


This scrumptious Banana Nut Bread is so moist with just the right amount of bananas, walnuts and a touch of cinnamon. In about ten minutes you too can have this bread prepped and in the oven. It makes the house smell so good and it tastes better than any bakery loaf. We love a good sweet quick bread. I mean honestly, who doesn’t? Lemon Blueberry Bread, Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon Glaze, Strawberry Bread, and this recipe are just a few of our favorites.
