My son wanted some Banana Bread…


Actually I had plans to fix some due to I only had 3 bananas left and they were turning and my son asked me to fix some last night so I did. I got him involved with it too 🙂

This is the recipe I used with a few modifications:

Banana-Nut loaf:
2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of oil
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas cut up
2 tablespoons of milk
1/2 cup of walnuts or pecans

these are the modifications I did:
I left out the nuts due to not having the any in the cabinet
I added 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla


1. grease your 9 X 5 X 3 loaf pan

2. in a large mixing bowl put the flour

3 . in another bowl cream the oil and sugar and till sort of fluffy…add the eggs and vanilla


4. in another bowl put the cut up bananas and mash-up with fork….stir in the milk.

5. add the egg mixture and bananas alternately to the flour while mixing together until thoroughly mixed and has a smooth texture.

6. add nuts if you choose too

7. pour into pan


8. Bake in oven at 350 degrees 50 min to an hour

9. Enjoy 🙂


I always enjoyed banana bread as a kid and it’s not too bad of a snack when you consider the alternatives of all the junk food out there. Any ideas of what might be a good substitute for the nuts? Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!

  1. We like to add chocolate or peanut butter chips, raisins, a little bit of ground flax seed or cinnamon for added nutrition, m&m’s, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds. The possibilities are endless! Enjoy your bread, it’s one of my husband’s favorites. 🙂
