You must be banana nuts.

There are times. Everyone has 'em.  There are times when you want something sweet so bad you'd lick nutella from the jar. (Hey, I am not judging you, I'm just saying, we've all been there...)

And all you have in your house is a white chocolate bar and a banana.  That white chocolate bar is only left because the dark chocolate bar was eaten the last time you got the sweet tooth.  (You don't have to pretend, white chocolate is everyone's second fiddle.)

And what the heck is a girl to do, with bananas half way to palm beach and white chocolate?

You're going to think I am pregnant. You're going to think I've lost my mind. But I am in fact neither.  I am a flipping genius.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut White Chocolate Chunk Bread

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
3 mashed bananas
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup hot water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup white chocolate, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat oil and honey together. 

Add eggs, and mix well. Stir in bananas and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. 

Add baking soda to hot water, stir to mix, and then add to batter. Blend in chopped nuts and the white chocolate. Spread batter into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. 

Bake for 1 hour. Cool on wire rack for 1/2 hour before slicing. 

I know, thank me later.


  1. Awesome combination of ingredients. I want some!

  2. Definitely putting my white chocolate to use...most likely while eating the dark chocolate.

  3. It sounds crazy delicious actually! White chocolate and banana, I love it!

  4. I'm not usually a fan of banana bread...but this recipe is different!
