They probably feel like they are nuts enough, and don't need any more.
Like any good Southerner, I prefer to make mine with pecans (and I say it right, "pea-cans," though I have been known to pronounce it "puh-cahns" around my unfortunate yankee relatives that never learned to speak properly). But somehow, in spite of all my good intentions, my son is so afflicted that he prefers his banana bread without nuts - arguing that it is just fine as banana bread, that if it requires nuts, that makes it banana nut bread. I can't argue with logic like that ( I might as well just feed the bananas to the goats), so I don't try. I have made banana bread - well, banana muffins - with chocolate chips; the mini ones.
