One Bowl Banana Nut Bread

This is such an easy recipe. And it is so good! A friend from church gave it to me over 15 years ago and it has been my go to banana nut bread ever since. I have tried other recipes over the years, but none have been as good, or as easy, as this one.


Banana Nut Bread


1/2 stick butter

3 ripe bananas

1 egg

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups self rising flour

1/2 cup chopped nuts – I use walnuts, but pecans would work, too. If you like it really nutty, like I do, use a heaping 1/2 cup or even 3/4 cup of nuts.


Preheat oven to 350.

In a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter.

Add egg and whisk.

Place bananas in bowl and mash.

Add remaining ingredients and blend. It will seem a bit dry at first, but don’t worry. After a little stirring, it will moisten. Do not over mix, though!

Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
