Banana Nut Bread

Recipe by dicentra

Try spreading Nutella on the slices of this bread. YUM! It was my mom’s recipe and a great way to use up over-ripe bananas. This is the same recipe I use for zucchini bread. Just substitute shredded zucchini for the banana.

A nice moist, nutty and not too sweet banana bread. Your Mom had a great recipe! I used pecans and very ripe bananas which I think is the secret to a great loaf.
