Banana Bran Nut Bread

 I had bananas, I had bran cereal left over from the Pineapple Nut Bread, I come across the banana bran nut bread in the vintage cook book I have been using in the series of bread recipes I have been doing.

I guess I now officially have a bread series going on.

Banana-Bran Nut Bread
