Coach Bratton’s GoTo Banana Bread Recipe

by jughandle

Coach Bratton’s GoTo Banana Bread Recipe calls for walnuts.  If you have a nut allergy for all means, leave them out.

Bill Bratton has been a friend of mine since the ’60’s in high school.  He recently had a heart attack and is busy trying to improve his condition.  Banana bread is a good, filling way to add fruit, nuts and whole wheat grain to your diet.  – jughandle
