Easy Banana Bread Recipe with Fisher Nuts

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.

Easy Banana Bread Recipe

mash bananas and greek yogurt

This is a very easy banana bread recipe, once again – slightly modified from Simply Recipes. It was also recommended to me by my Aunt! I used plain 0% fat Greek Yogurt instead of butter and used 3/4 cup of organic cane sugar instead of regular. I also added about 1/4 cup of Fisher Almond Slivers to the recipe.

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.

I recently won a Fisher Nut Prize Pack and we now have LOTS of Pecans, Almonds and Walnuts - and no young 'uns around the house to devour them in an endless stream of baked goodies (my Honey/Hubby would eat them himself - but he's lost a lot of weight (we're both back at the weights we were when we got married - ages ago!)

Anyway, I know I am going to use a lot of them in salad) which they are wonderful in - especially this time of year with apples, pears, dried cranberries or cherries, Blue, Goat, Brie or Feta cheeses, assorted greens including any of the "bitter greens" like arugula, watercress or endive - and any of the Fisher Nuts are fabulous and everyone loves them!

I also plan to use some in Asian Stir Fries - but I DO want to do some healthy baking: like fruit & nut breads and muffins. We both love BANANAS so this is a good place to start. The Greek yogurt is an excellent idea and I must say that the photos are so - well - mouth watering. They just look so most and banana-y and nutty and yummy... Thanks!

Congrats on the win and the weight loss! That's awesome that you and your hubby are doing it together.

Yes, nuts in salads is another yummy way to add them in. Let me know how you like the bread if you try it. :)
