Recipe: Vanilla Nut Banana Bread
My mother enjoys a slice of warm sweet bread with her coffee in the morning and I love making it for her. This Banana Bread is a healthier “sweet” version of the store-bought breads and it has no preservatives or synthetics, only whole ingredients. It’s a wonderful blend of white and whole wheat flour and does not contain dairy products. It is fluffy and flavorful and we love to use the bananas from our garden when in season, it gives the taste an added boost.
Feel free to use the nuts that you enjoy and you can add other ingredients such as coconut flakes or cranberries.
My family loves this recipe. It is simple and fast to whip up, and the result is the most perfect moist banana bread ever. It takes about 15 minutes to combine the ingredients and 50 minutes to cook.
Enjoy and please e-mail me if you have any questions.
