I developed this recipe because I wanted an actual banana bread recipe, not banana cake. This recipe is very low in fat. The walnuts are optional.
4 ripe bananas, mashed
2/3 cup (150g) white sugar
2 cups (250g) plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (60g) chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease one 20x10cm loaf tin and set aside.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, mash the bananas and stir in the eggs and sugar. Stir in the flour mixture and mix until just combined, then fold in the chopped walnuts (optional). Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake at 180 degrees C for 55 to 65 minutes or until bread tests done. Remove from oven and cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely. Slice and serve.
