A twist on Banana Bread

When the bananas were starting to turn this time around, I went to cooks.com and found an easy banana bread recipe that did not disappoint. I thought it was fun that it was for bars...and even though I didn't have a jelly roll pan, I followed those instructions. It wasn't super sweet, but made a great, quick breakfast for a few days.


3 lg. over ripe bananas (or 4 small)
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. nuts
2 c. flour
1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix all ingredients. Put in 5 x 9 inch loaf pan that has been greased with shortening.
Bake at 325°F degrees for 1 hour OR

BANANA BARS: Pour mixture into jelly roll pan, bake until toothpick comes out clean (sides will pull away from pan). Make a sugar (confectioners') and water mixture and drizzle over the top when cooled. Cut into squares.
Do you have a favorite banana bread recipe? If so, please share! I'd love to try more! :)

BEST BANANA BREAD, HANDS DOWN! You know when you are looking for a recipe and you keep trying some but none are ever "the one?" Well...we tried this last week and as a family decided I could officially STOP looking for other banana bread recipes. Honestly, I will never try another one again, ever! This one was delicious!
