I know, I know..Moist is the ugliest word in the English language. But I can’t help it! This banana bread is just too perfectly moist not to describe it that way. So please bear with me 😉

I almost always buy too many bananas. It’s just something I will never unlearn I’m afraid. So every week I’m left with one or two overripe bananas which I freeze. I often make banana bread with them when I have enough stocked up! If you have my affliction, you’ll love this bread – so soft and filling, perfect for breakfast.

I used Paul Hollywood’s recipe for this bread which doesn’t include any extra flavors such as cinnamon or vanilla, but of course you can add these yourself. I like it as it is, the banana comes through lovely and the nuts add some extra texture and flavor. You could also add chocolate chips or dried fruit. Go crazy with it! 🙂
