Why I Love This Recipe

My family eats a lot of bananas. Some weeks more than others. Often enough I have overripe bananas and am forever making Banana Nut Bread. I was looking for a different recipe I can use the overripe bananas in and came across this recipe. I made 2 very minor changes. One change was by accident (I added the nuts to the batter when it was meant for the streusel) and the other change is....I added vanilla to the batter.

1/3 cup sugar
2 soft-ripe bananas, mashed

Streusel Topping
