How many recipes do I have for banana bread? Lots! But this one uses 3 bananas, and as those of you with old bananas know, the key to a banana bread recipe is how many bananas you have to use up. I cut the sugar by a third, as I generally do in all my sweet bread recipes. Yum – I think banana bread is really the main reason I buy bananas. And yes, this has nuts in it too. But you can certainly omit those if you have an allergy.
