Today I’m sharing my favorite moist banana bread recipe! It is absolutely delicious. Banana bread was always my favorite. I made it using various recipes and variations… and I have a winner – the recipe that I have improved. My family loves it. It is moist, loaded with bananas, butter, and toasted walnuts.

As the weather gets colder, we are all craving something freshly baked that is warm and comforting.  I’m sure this quick, easy banana bread would please any sweet tooth!

I bake it in a loaf or bundt pan. I guess it depends on my mood and occasion. Whenever I want  to serve a nice cake, I use a bundt pan, and when I want to look it like a bread, I use a loaf.

If you are guessing the measurements for the loaf, I suggest  9.4 x 4 inches/24×10 cm.

Banana bread variations

Add a 1/3 cup of poppy seeds

You can add a few handfulls of your favorite nuts. I like pecan, wallnuts, pistachios, peanuts, sliced almonds or hazelnuts.

If you want more richness, add some black chocolate chips.

Personally I don’t like raisins, as it would be too sweet to my taste, but if you love it, go ahead.


Bananas: It is the best to choose over-ripe bananas, as it gives extra sweetness and moisture. The peels should be at least half browned. Go for organic fruits. I allways choose them.

Eggs: choose free range eggs or find a local farm near your home.

Sugar: I like cane sugar.

Cinnamon: it pairs perfect with bananas moisture and gives amazing flavor. Cinnamon aftertaste makes the whole thing gourmet.

Cloves: clove pairs well with cinnamon. Make sure you use ground cloves.

Butter: As my kids are lactose intolerant, I use vegan butter. The butter adds richness and moisture as well as bananas.

Flour: I use organic all-purpose flour.
