banana pecan bread

Banana bread is the one baked treat I know my entire family will love, so it’s made very often in my house. I decided to make a few changes to this batch to make it a little more festive for the holidays, and everyone said this was the best banana bread I’ve made yet! If your family is a fan of cinnamon and streusel topping, this is the banana bread recipe for you!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 mashed bananas
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Streusel Topping:

  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Place all ingredients into bowl and mix together using your hands until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to a small bowl. Mix and set aside.
  3. Mix together sugars, egg, and oil until well combined.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined (mixture will be dry).
  5. Add milk, vanilla, and bananas and stir until fully incorporated.
  6. Mix in Pecans and pour into a greased loaf pan.
  7. Pour streusel topping over the top of banana bread mixture. Using a butter knife, swirl streusel topping a couple times until you can see batter start to pop through. Do not mix streusel in completely.
  8. Cook 60-70 minutes, checking regularly until a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Let cool 10 minuted before you remove from loaf pan. Enjoy!
