In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla extract.

Add the bananas and stir gently to combine the ingredients.

Then add the flour mixture and stir until completely combined. Using a rubber spatula, add the nuts.

Divide the mixture by pouring it into the two loaf pans.

Bake for 35-45 minutes. If the loaves start to get too dark on top before they are fully baked in the middle, cover them with foil to complete the baking process.

Cool loaves in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack.


Once the bread has cooled, wrap it in plastic wrap and leave it at room temperature. It can be stored this way for 5 days. To freeze, wrap in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil. It can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months.
