Macadamia Banana Bread

Having recently come back from Hawaii I was in need of some Aloha at home.

My favorite banana bread recipes is from Martha Stewart. Always moist and it never lasts long. Using this recipe I added some Aloha.

I baked the Banana Bread for 1 hour and 20 minutes at 350˚.

This was one of those loaves that went to work and I don't have a completion picture of. I did; however, get to taste the bread. It was pretty great!
