Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 55 min
Ready in: 1 hour 15 min
Yields: 1 loaf

Kitchenware Required

  • an 8"x4"x2" loaf pan
  • a medium mixing bowl
  • a large mixing bowl
  • a wooden spoon
  • a wire cooling rack
  • plastic cling wrap


  • 5 bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg


  1. Grease the bottom and halfway up the sides of your 8"x4"x2" loaf pan. Set the pan aside, and preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In your large mixing bowl combine the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon, salt, and ground nutmeg. Create a well in the center, and set the bowl aside.
  3. In your medium mixing bowl stir together the beaten eggs, mashed bananas, sugar, and melted butter. Once combined, pour the mixture from this bowl into the well of the dry mixture bowl. With your wooden spoon stir just until everything is moist. Do not over-stir, it is normal for your batter to have lumps.
  4. Fold your chopped walnuts into the batter.
  5. Using your wooden spoon transfer the batter into your greased loaf pan; filling the pan 2/3 of the way full.
  6. Place the loaf pan into your 350 degree oven, and bake the batter for 50 to 60 minutes, or until your loaf is golden brown.
  7. Place the loaf (in pan) atop a wire rack, and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Take the loaf out of the pan, and allow it to completely cool on the rack before wrapping it. Once cool, wrap your Banana Nut Loaf with plastic cling wrap, and store it overnight before slicing and serving. Enjoy

      I was searching for the Starbucks banana bread recipe yesterday, but came across yours instead, and boy am I glad that I did. Super moist and quite delicious! Thanks for posting the nutritional values, because I was curious as to how many calories were in a slice from Starbucks but couldn't find that info. At 221 calories per slice I'll keep your recipe and make my own. It's nice to have some piece of mind about the things going inside of me.

      Banana bread is a staple in our house ^_^ thanks for sharing your recipe! I will have to give yours a try. Mine has a crumb topping and much more spice to it. I have a hub on it if your interested. ^_^ I bet yours would make great toast, with butter of course!
