This was my grandmother's recipe. I've made it countless times, now my own children make it. It is a very moist banana bread.

The nuts make this banana bread a little different. Very yummy and easy to make. In the ingredients list, it calls for vegetable oil, but the directions mention shortening. I opted to use oil, which I am guessing makes the bread more moist.
