Starbucks Copycat Banana Bread

Starbucks Copycat Banana Bread, so delicious! Here's how to make it! 


  • 1 3/4 cups flour (bread flour is best)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe (this is usually 2 or 3 bananas)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup margarine
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (divided into 2 (1/2 cup) portions


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium size bowl combine all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt), stir together to combine.  In another medium size bowl combine margarine and sugar, with a mixer cream the margarine, and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Add in mashed bananas, eggs, milk and mix well.  Add 1/2 of the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix until the flour is just mixed in, then add in the remaining flour and 1/2 cup walnuts, blend together until everything is mixed together.  Do not overstir.

Pour batter into a greased 8x4 inch loaf pan.  Then top the batter with the remaining chopped walnuts.   Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack.
