I love searching the internet for new recipes to try. When I came upon HGTV’s Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines’s fresh banana bread recipe in her blog, Magnolia, I knew I had to try it.

After following her recipe to the tee the first time, I made a couple of small adjustments to her recipe to fit my taste.

First, I figured since bananas here in the Philippines are so much smaller than the ones in the US, I used 6-8 bananas (depending on the size) instead of just four. Also, I used over ripe lacatan bananas because they are so much sweeter than the latundan variety. Since lacatan bananas are already very sweet, I lessened the sugar to 3/4 of a cup. I prefer my banana bread to have a little crunch so I added 1/2 cups of chopped walnuts. The result was a banana bread that had a more intense banana taste that was not too sweet. And I loved the added texture of the walnuts.

This is how my version it looked like, coming out of the oven. It also filled the kitchen with such a yummy freshly baked sweet smell that made my mouth water. It tasted as good as it smelled, too!
