    Exactly one year ago today, I went to the Farmer's Market with my Hubby. While there, I bought some Banana bread from a very American, honest looking old granny...I was looking forward to this bread. I take a bite, no nuts. There's no nuts in the whole loaf. Biggest letdown since I figured out that life was in fact NOT like a box of chocolates. What kind of world are we living in if I can't trust an old lady to bake her banana bread the right way? Anyway, I ranted about this on Facebook last year, and got mixed results. Some people say banana bread without nuts is fine. I personally think that it just should not even be baked without nuts. Facebook reminded me of this very distressing issue, and I figured I'd post it here and see what everyone thought on the matter. Because as you all know, I like to tackle the important issues of today.

    NO nuts?!? What is the POINT without nuts? Do you like your banana bread minus the bananas too?

    Does this mean you're in favor of nuts in bread?

    We always do either nuts or chocolate chips.

    Never heard of putting chocolate chips in it...not sure how I feel about that. I'll get back to you on that. Do you at least use nuts AND chocolate chips?

    My husband and sons are very picky about the types of nuts they will eat. i prefer walnuts in banana bread, but they will only eat it if I use hazelnuts. They say they would eat it if I used peanuts, but that just sounds wrong to me. So sometimes when I make a large batch of banana bread I split the batch and put only chocolate chips in their loaves, if we do not have any hazelnuts. Then I put either walnuts with chocolate chips or just walnuts in the part my daughter and I claim as ours.
