Mixed Nut Banana Bread is a great option when you just can’t decide which nut butter is your favorite. This loaf is gluten free and refined sugar free. It’s not too sweet, but can definitely serve as a great breakfast option or dessert if topped with some chocolate and bananas (like I did in the last photo 🙂 )!
This loaf also has an amazing CRUNCH to it! I’m a sucker for texture when it comes to food, so adding all of the crunchy mixed nuts on top was a no brainer for me. Of course, this isn’t required, but I would say it is HIGHLY recommended!
This bread only takes 9 ingredients, one bowl and about an hour in time to make. This is why I LOVE quick breads like banana bread that don’t require proofing time or yeast.
Another great thing about this bread is that it can be customized to meet your preferences! For my loaf, I used pecans, almonds, peanuts and walnuts, but if prefer pistachios, or Brazil nuts, or anything else – feel free to substitute or just add those in!
Okay…so HOW do we make it?
I’m going to take you through the quick steps to make this bread, but they can also be found in the recipe card below!
- Let’s start by mashing the bananas in a large baking bowl until smooth.
- Next, you will add in the butter and mix until combined – I would recommending using unsalted butter which I’ve linked here 🙂
- Up next, you’re going to add in the eggs and then the greek yogurt (I highly recommend greek yogurt because of the consistency. If you use a plant based or thinner yogurt, the bread may not turn out the same)
- Once all wet ingredients have been combined, you will stir in the monk fruit.
- Then add all dry ingredients to the bowl and mix together (do not over mix).
- Once batter forms, pour into a lined loaf pan, then top with all of your chopped nuts!
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 50-55 minutes (until cooked through)
- Slice and enjoy!
