Banana Walnut Loaf

There were about 6 frozen bananas in my freezer taking up room so, it appeared to be time to make a banana loaf.  To increase the nutritional value and add Omega 3’s, this loaf has walnuts but you could easily omit them or add something else. Banana Bread

I found a terrific Martha Stewart recipe.  The only thing I altered was to cut down on the sugar.  (use your own judgment) I’m not much of a baker so I need to pay attention to what I’m doing when baking.  Martha’s recipes are so clearly written, it helps me a lot.  I also found an excellent technique for dealing with frozen bananas in recipes.  By using Amy’s advice, there is no mess and no mashing required.  It wins a gold star for Arthritis Kitchen easy!

Martha’s recipe was foolproof resulting in a beautiful, moist loaf with excellent texture.  The extra step of toasting the walnuts really makes them stand out.  I recommend doing this in a dry skillet or in the oven.  Just be careful not to burn them.
