M's Banana-Nut Bread

What do you do with over ripe bananas? Do you throw them away? 

Please don't. Make my banana bread instead. You won't be sorry. It's my favorite kind of baking.  

The dump (not that kind, silly)

and stir method. The only way to screw it up is mixing too much. Notice how you can still see the flour. That's what you are looking for.

Stir it up, bake, and wait 50 minutes for this

So, do someone a favor and make two. Keep one and share one.
