Banana nut anything brings me back to my childhood. I’ve been searching for a real-food alternative to the traditional recipes that include refined white sugar. This recipe from “The Family Cooks” cookbook by Laurie David (one of my all time favorite cookbooks, by the way) is exactly what I was looking for. The credit for this delicious recipe is all given to “The Family Cooks”. I couldn’t find their original recipe posted online, so I’m reposting it here because it’s just too good to keep to myself. I only modified it by adding vanilla and pecans. The key to this recipe is using very ripe bananas for the right sweetness and texture.
