  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts


  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda, and set aside. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas and stir in the eggs, sugar, and nuts.
  • Add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Pour into a greased 9x5 loaf pan. Bake at 350°F for 50-60 minutes or just until knife inserted comes out pretty much clean.


I often add a teaspoon of vanilla or maple syrup, but this is optional.
