Banana Walnut Bread

1/2 cup  walnuts toasted and coarsely chopped
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup (113 grams) Canola oil/ Melted Unsalted butter.
3 ripe large bananas,mashed well (about 1-1/2 cups)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease the Bread loaf with oil and flour and keep aside.
In a small pan toast the walnuts until it gets little warm. Let cool and then chop coarsely.
In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nuts. keep aside.
In a medium-sized bowl combine the mashed bananas, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. With a wooden spoon, lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until combined and the batter is thick. (Do not over mix the batter it may yield tough,hard,rubbery bread.) Transfer batter into prepared pan.

Bake until bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 to 60 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
