Banana Nut Bread Recipe

A couple weeks ago, I was getting the kids packed and ready to go to Galveston. As I was gathering snacks for the ride, I noticed 4 beautiful bananas sitting on the counter. I didn’t want to take bananas on a road trip and there would be no one home to eat them. But, I also knew Colby would be back a day earlier than us… and would commence to cleaning. So, I left him a note by the bananas – realizing they would be very ripe when he finally got home – and asked him not to throw them away. They would be perfect for Banana Nut Bread by the time we all got home. I was so right!

Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Nice and ripe the way they should be for banana nut bread, we took a trip to the store to pick up the 2 remaining ingredients we did not readily have in the pantry. Otherwise, yes, this incredibly moist banana bread recipe was really going to be that easy since we had everything else. Now, we’ve never made any type of bread recipe from scratch, but we were ready for the banana bread challenge.

And SO GLAD we took that challenge. The homemade banana bread recipe was easy to make… and turned out absolutely delicious!

Oh.my.goodness.
