One of my favorite recipes from when I was little is Big Bird’s Banana Bread from the Sesame Street book series. I passed these books on to my son when he was little, and despite the fact that he outgrew them long ago, we still keep Volume 2 close by to make this banana bread that he absolutely loves.

This banana bread recipe is delicious, easy and quick to make, is safe for some allergies, and you can add in lots of different ingredients to change it up. We love walnuts, but mini chocolate chips, pecans, toasted coconut, and nut butters subbed in for half of the butter (including Nutella!) are all good options! This recipe can also be made vegan-friendly by using agave nectar instead of honey and Earth Balance, coconut oil, or applesauce for the butter.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place your peeled bananas in a large mixing bowl and mash them together. Add the honey and melted butter, and mix well. In a separate bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flower and baking soda, then mix thoroughly into the banana, butter, and honey mixture. Add your walnuts, chocolate chips, or other additive - about a quarter cup for most, or to taste. Spray your loaf pan with non-stick spray and bake for 30 minutes, testing to be sure a toothpick stuck in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
