Banana Bread with Pudding Mix

We are a family that loves cooking, eating, and critiquing! So, when I made this banana bread with pudding mix late one Sunday afternoon and each member of the family, having tasted it at separate times, individually remarked: this is the best banana bread I ever had! I knew this recipe was a winner.

Was it because of the moistness throughout every bite from the 6 very ripe bananas, or the subtle hint of real coconut (not the typical overly sweetened kind) or the intermittent surprise of a rich dark chocolate bite? We’re not sure, but suffice it to say the combination really works.

I followed the recipe exactly, but once the batter was poured in the pan, I sprinkled chopped walnuts on top of the batter across 1/4 of the pan. (I couldn’t resist – I LOVE nuts in my banana bread). I tasted a slice without and with the nuts. While both were equally scrumptious, I did like the extra texture of the nuts.

Chrissy Teigen’s banana bread recipe was so good that I now have no fear buying a really large bunch of bananas because I can’t wait for them to get really ripe so I can make this again!
