  2. Slice the spotty bananas into large pieces and place in a bowl.

  4. Add the flour mixture and stir until completely blended. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the walnuts.
  5. Divide the mixture into the two loaf pans. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a thin knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. 
  6. If the loaves begin to get too dark before they are done in the middle, cover with foil. Allow to cool in the pans for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  3. Place wrapped banana bread in a large freezer-friendly storage bag or reusable container.
  4. Date the bag and freeze for up to 3-4 months. 
  5. Thaw wrapped or unwrapped in the refrigerator or at room temperature. All methods work like a charm!

Some recipe notes

  • Be sure to use the ripest bananas you can find. It enriches the flavour and ensures that the bread retains moisture.
  • Make nut substitutions if you’d like. Walnuts are a classic, but pretty much any other nut will work – try pecans, peanuts, anything! You can also omit the nuts if you’d prefer, as well.
  • Add chocolate chips if you’re feeling it. You can swap them in for the nuts, or do half and half.
  • Use softened butter for a soft texture and irresistible butter flavour.
  • Use all brown sugar in the banana bread recipe as it yields soft and moist banana bread. It also adds wonderful flavour.

So, don’t wait. If you have leftover spotty bananas on the counter then it’s time to try this recipe. And for more such interesting food tips, stay tuned to Eco Eats.
