Banana bread holds a special place in the hearts of home bakers and food enthusiasts worldwide. Its origin can be traced back to the Great Depression era in the 1930s when resourceful home cooks sought ways to use overripe bananas, which were otherwise destined for waste. The incorporation of overripe bananas into recipes not only minimized food waste and added moistness, it also added natural sweetness at a time when sugar was very hard to come by. The results are this beloved comfort food that has stood the test of time.

With the addition of the rich warmth of Madagascar Bourbon Islands Vanilla Extract, Himalayan Pink Salt and chopped walnuts this banana bread a true treat for your taste buds. Moist and delicious, with a delightful crunch and nutty undertones, this banana bread great served as a comforting breakfast, a delightful afternoon snack, or a delicious dessert.

For an extra layer of indulgence, consider sprinkling Vanilla Bean Sugar on top before baking, providing a tantalizing crispness to the finished loaf.
