  • 1/2 Cup hot water
  • 4 perfect spoonfuls of tea, such as DAVID’s TEA banana nut bread tea
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 Cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/3 Cup chopped nuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Pour ½ cup boiling water over tea and set aside for at least 5 minutes.

In large bowl, mash bananas, sugar, egg, and butter until well blended, then without straining, pour over tea and mix.

Add flour, baking soda, and salt, and stir until the batter just comes together, then fold in chocolate chips and nuts.

Pour into a buttered 9-by-5 loaf pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Banana Nut Bread Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Banana Nut Bread Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
