You can choose your favorite type of nut for this classic quick bread, or leave them out altogether.

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.
