Delightful Banana Nut Bread – A Family Favorite Recipe

Delightful Banana Nut Bread – A Family Favorite Recipe

Banana Nut Bread is a family favorite that we make quite often. It is great for those hectic mornings or for taking with you to an outing. We often attend swim meets on the weekends. That usually means we arrive at the pool very early. This banana bread has been a great grab and go option that is filling and has ingredients that are good for our kids for the competition that lies ahead for them. It has a definite banana flavor without being overwhelming and the walnuts add a nice crunch and nutty flavor. This is a delightful bread for breakfast, tea or a snack.
