I made an easy banana bread recipe and included Fisher Nuts that were sent to me for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I slightly modified a banana bread recipe that I found on Simply Recipes. It was my first time making banana bread, so no way was I just going to wing it!
Fisher Nuts are perfect to have on hand all the time. They come in resealable bags and are very convenient to use in a variety of recipes. Not just for baking, Fisher Nuts can add flavor to many food recipes, as well! You can also just grab the bag and start snacking.
Last time I made Nutella Muffins with Almond Slivers and they were a hit. This time I had some overly-ripe bananas, so I thought I would give banana bread a whirl. We have a habit of letting good bananas go bad. I’m trying to catch them while they are ripe and still good enough to use in baked goods.
Banana bread is great to make all year round. I love to have it in the house if guests are coming over. Plus, just baking it makes the whole house smell amazing. It’s delicious to eat plain, with butter, heated up, or just room temperature. I’m a huge fan of banana bread.

The end result was a pretty dense and moist banana bread. I used 4 bananas and next time would probably only use 3. I would have preferred a slightly more cake-y bread, but Mike loved it. Overall, it was pretty darn good.
