Banana Nut Bread

I love, love, love banana nut bread, and this recipe is awesome! It is so moist, and so delicious.

This recipe is extremely quick and easy to throw together, and if your house is anything like mine, the finished product will seem to vanish rather quickly too : )

Makes 1 loaf

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or 7.5 oz Soft White wheat flour)
1 1/2 cups sugar (or honey sucanat)

3 med-large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil (or melted butter)
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat your oven to 350ยบ. Grease and flour a 9x5 loaf pan.
