My house always seems to have fruit that no one ever eats. Bananas slowly go bad while sitting in the corner of the counter. This time, since I saw the ripe bananas before they went bad, I took the opportunity to make some Banana Walnut Bread. Maybe this will be a year of breakfast for The Classy Cookies since that seems to be what I am making most often….

Bananas are a great way to substitute eggs. Instead of using one banana and one egg like I usually do, I chose to substitute the egg entirely and it turned out perfect! You can’t even tell the difference! This is a great recipe to make on the weekends for breakfast! It tastes so yummy when warm from the oven!


Banana Walnut Bread


  • 2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/3 Cup Unsalted Butter (Softened)
  • 3 Tablespoons Whipping Cream
  • 2 Bananas
  • 1/2 Cup Walnuts (Chopped)
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt


1.Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a loaf pan and set it aside.

2. Cream the banana and butter together with a mixer.

3. Once creamed, add the whipping cream, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the walnuts.

4. Mix together on medium speed for 3 minutes. Scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Stir in the walnuts.

5. Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan.


5. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. After about 40 minutes, try checking for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, remove from oven. If it’s not clean, continue to bake checking every 5 minutes or so until done.


6. Once the loaf has completely cooled, remove it from the pan.
