Here's an easy Banana Nut Bread recipe that's healthier than traditional nut bread.

Banana Nut Bread

4 cups flour
1 1/3 cups (3.2 oz envelope) nonfat dry milk
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 large eggs
3 1/2 cups (about 7 medium) mashed, very ripe bananas
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease two 9-by-5-inch loaf pans.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, dry milk, baking powder and cinnamon.

In a large mixer bowl, beat eggs, bananas, sugar and vegetable oil on medium speed until well-blended. Gradually beat in flour mixture; stir in nuts. Spoon into prepared pans.

Bake for 60 to 65 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Yields 2 loaves.
