Nutty Banana Bread


There is something very comforting about banana bread. It is something I love eating in the morning with a cappuccino or in the afternoon as a snack. For me, banana bread is not very memorable and tends to be nothing to write home about. I do not have any funny or witty stories to tell you about my experiences with banana bread. But I need to have those food items that when I eat, I enjoy but am not flooded with a ton of memories of my childhood or important events in my life. Feeling too many emotions can be exhausting! Banana bread is delicious and reliable, and those are two important traits I look for and crave in food.

I love this walnut banana bread from the Food Network website. I have four modifications to the recipe:
1) I use 2/3 cup of sugar, rather than 1 cup because I think the banana bread is sweet even with the reduced amount of sugar.
2) I add a handful of chopped pecans for even more texture and flavor.
3) I add two handfuls of chocolate chips because I love chocolate.
4) I use ripe but not overly ripe bananas. I find the banana flavor is a little more mild than when using overly ripe bananas.
