Best Banana Nut Bread Recipe — The Frugal Chef

In my opinion this is the best banana nut bread recipe you will find. It is very easy to make, super flavorful and moist. You will need very ripe bananas for the best outcome so the blacker the peel the better.

Sometimes we end up with very ripe bananas and we are not ready to make bread. It is fine to freeze them. Simply thaw them before using them.

In this recipe I am using sour cream. You can easily substitute that for buttermilk, whipping cream, milk or yogurt.
