Starbucks Banana Walnut Bread

For the last few months, I have been searching for the best recipe of the banana nut bread just because it is mine and my husband’s favorite.  During the course of my research, I found out that alot of cooks and bakers recommend the Starbucks recipe of the bread which, apparently, they handed out a few years back.  Tried it several times already and I love this recipe.  Hope you like it too!
P.S.  I love eating this with honey butter! :)
