¾ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. kosher salt

1 c. sugar

½ c. canola oil

2 large eggs

½ c. walnuts or pecans

(NOTE: I doubled this recipe when I made it in the photo. The listed ingredients are for one loaf. I made two)

Step 3: Wet Ingredients

In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well combined. This mixture should resemble slush on a cold winter's day.

Step 4: Banana Time!

Put all the bananas in a small bowl and mash them with a fork. This is a great way to get kids involved, because it's a simple and safe step that will make them feel included.

Step 5: Making the Batter

Alternate adding about a third of each buttermilk and dry ingredients, mixing well with a spatula after each addition. When adding in the buttermilk, be cautious when mixing; you don't want it to splash!

After the wet and dry are combined, add the bananas and gently fold them in. Mix until well combined.

Step 7: Baking

In either a non-stick loaf pan or a greased one, pour the batter (REMEMBER: I doubled the recipe). Add the nuts on top (I pre-roasted mine for about 10 minutes before popping them on. I like them a little on the burned side. Omit if you don't want them burned. Or, just don't put nuts if you have allergies!)

Step 8: Final Product

After bout 45-55 minutes of baking, test it with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, you're done! Remove from the oven, cool for 5 minutes in the pan, and then take them out using an offset spatula. Let cool, and enjoy!
