Our Secret Recipe for Life Changing Honey Banana Nut Bread

What do you do with those bananas you didn’t eat before they started to turn brown? You make banana bread! We have a delicious spin on a traditional banana bread featuring our Hawaii’s Local Buzz all-natural Hawaiian honey and our delicious sweet & salty flavors of macadamia nuts.

Here’s the basic recipe:

⅓ cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 cup Hawaii’s Local Buzz honey
½ cup raw sugar
1 ½ cups mashed banana
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup chopped Cinnamon Bun Crunch Macadamia Nuts


  1. With a mixer, beat together the butter, egg, honey, sugar, vanilla and banana.
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and stir until moistened.
  3. Fold in the chopped nuts.
  4. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25 minutes. Turn the oven down to 300 and continue baking for around 25 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly pressed.

For a delicious twist, add ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg in step 2. This transforms the banana bread into a spice bread. You can also substitute our Vanilla Crunch or Caramel Crunch Macadamia Nuts for the Cinnamon Bun Crunch.
