3 very ripe bananas, peeled (about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups mashed)
1/3 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt Fine Grind
3/4 cup sugar (1/2 cup if you would like it less sweet, 1 cup if more sweet)
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Madagascar Bourbon Islands Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts + more to sprinkle on top if desired - Vanilla Bean Sugar sprinkled on top gives a nice crunch too!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until completely smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour. Add walnuts.
Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes. Then remove the banana bread from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
