Banana Walnut Bread recipes are a dime a dozen. If you have another dime this would be one to try. It has been finding its way to our table a lot lately. If you’ve been following along on our new homestead journey, you know we are still in the process of moving and remodeling our ranch house at the new homestead and that my kitchen is limited, to say the least right now. I’ve discovered though that my Waring Convection oven is capable of so many things, despite it not being a full size oven, I can even fit two loaf pans in it.
When the weather turned chilly and the hillside turned from golden hues to drab gray mixed in with the evergreen trees, recipes like gluten-free Banana Walnut bread just needed to be made. We love Grain Free Banana Bread, but my stash of almond flour hadn’t made the move yet.
My Grandma Z. used to make Banana Walnut bread. When I was a kid you could always stop by her house, which was conveniently located about three blocks from my school, and usually find something baking. Sometimes it was her famous chocolate chip cookies and other times it was Banana Walnut bread. Being the mother of 12 that she was, yes you read that right, she was pretty good at pinching pennies. One of her ways to do a little budget baking was to reuse her tin cans that I believe walnuts came in. She used them to bake her nut breads in. Now a days I wouldn’t advocate baking in a tin can, but it was cool to see round loaves of Banana Walnut Bread sitting on her counter. It was even better to get a slice of some when I stopped by.
