Very Moist Banana Nut Bread~

  • My Hannah made this recipe tonight and it was so good~thought we would share!
  • It is made with oil instead of shortening~which I like!

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/3 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk (I used sour milk)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 4-5 bananas (use completely black bananas, this is very important)


  1. 1
    Heat oven to 350°. Grease or spray 2 loaf pans.
  2. 2
    In a large bowl, mash bananas with a masher or by well washed hands.
  3. 3
    Dissolve soda in buttermilk-- use a larger container as it will foam up quite a bit.
  4. 4
    Mix all ingredients by hand and add in 1 cup chopped nuts. Bake at 350° for 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out ALMOST clean.

I've always used oil instead of shortening, I replace oil in all my baking, canola oil too.

Yumm! What a wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing. My hubby has high colesterol and we need to cut out the shortening as well. I can't wait to try this. He loves Banana Bread ;)

Have you tried it with Apple sauce instead of oil? I usually try to substitute the oil because... well, frankly, I don't need the extra padding :oP Sounds great though, I'll have to try it sometime. My kids only like bananas when they are perfectly ripe, so I put the extra ripe ones in freezer bags pre-mashed that way they are perfect for recipes like this one.
