Banana Nut Bread

We use organic ingredients here at the Cottage, but feel free to use what you have.  Everything is measure for measure the same as normal ingredients so use what you have.
This is a recipe our grandma Cottage used to make a lot.  It brings to mind sweet memories as the sweet smelling breads wonderful aroma wafts through the house.  Mr. Cottage likes to take it to work and share with his co-workers who love it.  I am making a loaf of it today for one of the men to take home. I hope that you enjoy the recipe.  Tell me what you think of it and let me know how you make it your own.


2 Cups Organic Unbleached All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda 
1/4 Teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt (this salt has lots of good minerals in it)
2 1/3 Cup Organic over-Ripe Bananas Mashed
1/2 Cup Organic Butter
2 Organic Free Range Eggs
3/4 Cup Organic Raw Sugar 
2/3 Cup Chopped Walnuts (optional)
Obviously if there are nut allergies in the family it is simple to just omit this part of the recipe.  It will still make wonderful bread.


Mix flour, salt and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. In a small bowl put your bananas in and mash them with a fork, potato masher or in your mixer until smooth. In medium bowl cream Butter and Sugar together, add Bananas (mashed) and eggs. Combine wet ingredients with dry and mix until combined, but do not over stir.  It will be a sort of lumpy batter,  Next you can add in your walnuts or other nuts as desired again, it will not ruin the recipe not to add the nuts.

Pour into bread pan and bake at 350 for 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
