Banana Nut Beer Bread

When I woke up this morning, it was sunny outside. Now, as I get ready to make a recipe to photograph for the blog, the clouds start to move in. It happens every weekend. I get the worst lighting. How am I going to better my photography skills with gray skies?

I’m hoping, as the sun moves to the front of the house, the clouds will start to disappear, too. I do have a couple of recipes I made weeks/months ago, that I haven’t shared. I wanted to make them again and take better photos, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. As I turn around to check the weather, I noticed it’s currently pouring outside. Go Figure.

So, I decided today, I’d share this beauty.

Yes, I know everyone is “eating healthy” and trying to lose weight, and I’m sure a Banana Nut Bread recipe probably will not get many Pins on Pinterest right now, but this bread is amazing! And I used Greek Yogurt {I literally use it for everything now!} instead of all butter.

Plus Nuts and Bananas are good for you and a piece of warm Banana Bread is just good for the soul. I wasted no time cutting a slice of this bread and probably burned a few taste buds. You can’t beat fresh bread right out of the oven. Leftover bread is great toasted to crisp up the sides and warm the middle. Now, I need to remake this… Today!

The best part about this bread, is the Cinnamon Sugar swirl. It adds a little something extra to a normal banana bread.

Speaking of extras, I used Lazy Magnolia’s Southern Pecan Brown Ale in this recipe.

If you’re keeping count, that’s 5 recipes using their beer. I’m kind of obsessed.

If you can’t find Southern Pecan, you could use any brown ale that is low in bitterness or your favorite Stout or Porter. I’d stick to a drier beer, though. A really sweet Milk Stout may off balance the recipe.

Just another side note, Banana Bread always reminds me of my mommy! She makes it all the time. As I think about it, I can actually smell the bread cooking, and hear the smoke alarm going off! :) Love you Mommy!!
