After a year and a half of the Covid Pandemic we are still in our third lockdown in Ontario. Last year while in the first lockdown everyone was baking banana bread. Since we are still in lockdown here I thought it would be fun to create a twist on the classic banana bread! I love a plain banana bread but sometimes it is fun to change it up.

The added flavour an texture of the chopped pecans are marvellous in this bread. Those of you that have been following me for a while know that I am obsessed with crunchy streusel toppings! So too add even more to this banana nut bread I added a pecan streusel on top.

If you’re looking to change up a classic banana bread this recipe is perfect for you!

How to Make This Banana Bread

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease loaf pan and line bottom and long edges with parchment paper. You want the parchment paper sides to overhang, this allows you to easily remove the bread.

Crunchy Streusel Topping

In a medium sized bowl mix together flour, white sugar, cinnamon, 1/3 cup chopped pecans and melted butter. Mix until well combined, it should have a crumbly texture. Set aside. It’s important to make the topping first because the longer it sits out the crumblier the texture becomes.
