Easy Banana Bread Recipe With No Butter. It’s not only for my vegan peeps, but it’s for those of us who are insanely busy and might not always have butter on hand, but most everything else should be things you have in your pantry. I never quite seem to have three bananas, but the recipe is forgiving enough to let me get away with two. Because bananas are already buttery on their own, this bread retains its moisture without being soggy. You don’t have to add the walnuts if you don’t want to, and sometimes I’ll add chocolate chunks or butterscotch chips. This recipe is as versatile as your imagination. And it’s the perfect little something to nibble on while you enjoy your morning coffee.
The sound of my husband slamming the front door often suffices as my morning alarm. I’ll sit on the side of the bed, feet dangling, and try to convince myself that although I telecommute for work, I still need to stick to a rigorous routine. This is when I’ll stumble to the coffee-maker, blurry visioned. Most mornings I’ll have some toast to accompany my coffee, but on that rare occasion – when the weather is in rare autumnal form – I want something more warm and comforting. This banana bread recipe hits the spot. The walnuts add textural contrast, I am faithful to Trader Joe’s pumpkin pie spice because it contains cardamom and lemon peel, but since finding out that they only sell it during the holidays – much to my chagrin – any pumpkin pie spice will do. But, those warming spices are just as necessary as the bananas.
