Banana Walnut Bread – Bread maker recipe

Banana walnut breadIngredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp nonfat dry milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups whole wheat bread four
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp gluten
  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 1 cup shelled walnuts


  1. Peel the bananas and mash them into somewhat smooth puree
  2. To the bread maker pan, add meshed bananas, water, butter, salt, dry milk and sugar
  3. Then add the flours, gluten and yeast
  4. Set the bread maker on 2-lb loaf and medium-dark crust setting and start the bread making cycle (start to complete about 3 hours)
  5. When the first kneading cycle is complete add the shelled walnuts
  6. In about 3 hours, the bread loaf is ready! Open the lid and let it cool for 2-3 minutes before you take the loaf out of the pan.


If your loaf bakes too dense, next time add 1-2 tbsp additional water. Water will help the loaf rise and gluten will provide support so that the loaf does not collapse / crater during the baking cycle.
