Simple and Healthy Banana Walnut Bread

My daughter and I love bananas. We eat them by the kilo in a week, much to the sarcastic comments about being monkeys from the hubby. At times bananas ripen so quickly that we end up left with 3 to 4 in this state. I usually make banana puris with them, but this time I wanted a much healthier option and came up with this Super Healthy Banana Bread.

It was a sure hit and I think the hubby loved it do much he wont be grumbling about buying bananas in kilos.
