Just Like Your Mom’s Walnut Banana Bread

When I think of walnut banana bread, I think of the kind I imagine my mom would have baked – IF she had baked. Specifically, the kind that would wait for me after school with the sweet smell of bananas wafting through the air. It’s the sweet taste of nostalgia, that I crave. Even if it’s only imagined. This walnut banana bread that I make reminds me of just that. And hopefully, one day, it will bring my own daughter her own nostalgic memories.

For this recipe, I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour. I minimized the sugar quite a bit, but it’s still sweet enough. This version is dairy free, but we do like to eat a slice with some salted butter on top! And I added a whole lot of walnuts, and only walnuts. Because banana bread is not banana bread without walnuts in my humble opinion!

This recipe is super kid-friendly. And if they are allergic to nuts, or to make it school-friendly, you can add chocolate chips or leave it plain instead! I love cutting out a piece into a fun shape and including it into my daughter’s lunchbox as a special treat. They are also good as an after school snack!
