Back of the Bag Recipe: Banana Bread

Do you ever notice on the back of packaging there are “suggested” ways to use the product? Every so often you get a real winner, while others you wonder why they bothered because they were so bad.

I was wondering what I could make that would be sweet, easy to make, and quick to bake. I was wanting muffins and my eyes lighted on the banana nut bread recipe on the back of the flour bag. Why not? A new recipe is always welcome, right?

While I had 2 bananas on their way out I didn’t have any nuts except slivered almonds, which is what I used as a garnishment only on top. It didn’t taste too bad, it was still moist despite leaving it in the oven too long because I forgot to set the timer.

  2. How much salt?
    I’m hoping to try this… but your ingredient list didn’t have the salt listed.
    thank you.

  3. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I am the only soul in the world who doesn’t like bananas, but my Mom loves banana bread. I’m sure she would really enjoy it. Thanks for sharing at my party!

    • I have an oral allergy to bananas so they taste like pepperoni to me. ugh. But I had the age old problem: 2 bananas with black spots that no one was going to eat. I always love a good version of my fav eats, so I hope she enjoys this version. Maybe she can give me her fav banana bread recipe!
