This is my favorite banana bread recipe. I have been making this for ages. It dissapears in no time. I have added walnuts or chocolate chips or white chocolate chips to this recipe just to change it up once in a while. 1/4 cup of each is all you need.

SO EASY!! It was in the oven in five minutes flat - made from four bananas I had in the freezer that I'd taken out a couple of hours before. I used brown sugar inside, and then sprinkled the top with a cinnamon sugar mixture to make it look pretty. I did use walnuts (1 cup worth), as banana bread isn't banana bread without nuts in our house. This made three mini loaves, and baked up in just under an hour. Thanks so much for posting this simple recipe! Made for PRMR Tag.

This was so yummy and moist! I made it for DH's birthday breakfast treat (today) using walnuts, chocolate chips and mayo in place of the miracle whip (which worked just fine)! We could not wait until it was completely cool and it was so wonderful still warm! Thanks for posting! Made for PRMR Tag July 2010!
