The original title was nlb’s Indescribably Delicious Banana Bread. I have no clue who nlb is, but I want to thank her/him very much for this recipe! It’s my most favorite banana bread of all time!!

This special recipe has been in my email inbox since 2002!!! It’s older than 5 of my kids! Back in the day before food blogs were the rage, to share recipes you could join a recipe loop through E-mail. This famous recipe was SO popular that everyone requested it over and over. So they started putting the initials nlb on it. Those 3 little letters indicated that this was THE banana bread recipe you wanted to try, that you must try!

What sets this apart from all other banana breads is the topping. The loaf gets dressed with a delicious, sweet and nutty mixture.

My kids prefer theirs plain 😨. What can I say, they don’t appreciate the wonderful taste of nuts yet. So you can see in the background a few slices of naked bread on the plate. LOL

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!

Normally all my ripe bananas go to Banana Muffins, but this time I wanted to make the kids banana bread for a snack. It tends to last longer than 24 muffins, go figure!  They were a little miffed that I put nuts on one loaf this time, but how could I blog it and not show you the actual food? They got over it pretty quick. 😁

I know you want to jump off the computer, laptop, or phone, right now and fix this recipe!  To see if Indescribably Delicious Banana Bread lives up to it’s name!! 😉

This is one title that won’t disappoint!
