This is my banana bread recipe that I go to anytime I make banana bread. This is easy to put together, and the nuts are optional. My recommendation for this banana bread is to use King Arthur Flour because it produces a better bread.
I grew up on this banana bread, I think I could almost make this banana bread without even looking at the recipe. For variety you can add a few nuts, some poppy seeds, or even an extra banana if you happen to have an extra on hand.
