The banana bread at Starbucks is the best I’ve had next to my mother’s home recipe. Bananas, walnuts, and pecans combine into this moist, nutty, classic banana bread. A perfect harmonious blend of deliciousness.
One of the most popular items on the menu is the Banana Bread. If you need to impress your guests with an easy recipe, and don’t have time to head to your local Starbucks, you can make the tasty recipe at home. Starbucks Banana Bread is a sweet, moist cake with chunks of banana and pecans. It is often served in Starbucks stores with butter when it is still warm.
