A moist, classic Banana Nut Bread recipe that is both easy and delicious!

Every single month I always come across as surprised at how far we are into the year.

This month it’s already October and I don’t get it. How did we get here? How is it only 2 1/2 months from Christmas?

In fact, when you’re reading this, it will be 81 days left until Christmas. Say what? I feel like we just celebrated, though I am staring down Halloween.

It’s definitely Fall here. We’ve had cool and chilly days, leaves are changing and I’m a very happy girl.

This is my favorite time of year. And what better recipe than Banana Nut Bread?

This is a time I find myself in the kitchen baking more, enjoying aromatic smells from the kitchen on a near daily basis.

Today is Group A’s reveal for the Secret Recipe Club. The blog I was assigned to, is Mother Would Know, written by Laura. Laura’s blog holds countless recipes and ideas for great food, including Sour Cream Muffins with Chocolate Chunks & CherryLamb Meatballs and Grilled Vegetable Shish Kebabs.

Banana Nut Bread

I let my daughter have the final this month, and she picked this delicious Banana Bread recipe, because (and I quote) “Who doesn’t love banana bread?”. She’s right, it was an easy sell for me and with our colder weather, I’ve been craving things just like this. We loved this recipe and thought it was both simple and delicious!

    1. We might be alone in our love for cooler weather, hahah I keep seeing everyone complaining. Not me. This bread is fantastic on a cool morning with a cup of hot coffee or tea. Happy Fall!

    1. The funny thing is, that often they taste different and this one does from my traditional banana bread. This has a more banana flavor which mine is lacking. I love this one.
