Bisquick Banana Nut Bread with Granola Topping

I had a couple bananas that were well past their prime and decided to take advantage of the cooler mornings... This Bisquick Banana Nut Bread with Granola Topping is perfect any time of day, and especially nice with a good strong cup of coffee or tea:@) I had some granola to use up and thought it might add a little extra goodness to the top, and nuts are always welcome. Be sure to use all of the banana for the best flavor and moisture. This is one of those quick breads that's better after being covered in plastic wrap after cool and allowed to sit for a few hours. It's a nice recipe to try if you already have Bisquick on-hand.
Want to make this a tad healthier?
Use Heart Healthy Bisquick, a Stevia type sweetener, fat free milk, sub some applesauce for the oil, etc.
I made half of the recipe, that made a very nice 4X8 loaf.

Bisquick Banana Nut Bread with Granola Topping-adapted from Betty Crocker
1 1/3 C mashed banana, approximately 3 large 
2/3 C sugar
1/4 C milk
3 Tblsp vegetable oil
1/2-1 tsp vanilla-I used 1 tsp
3 eggs
2 2/3 C Bisquick
1/2 C chopped nuts of choice-I used walnuts
Granola and extra nuts for topping if desired
  1. Mix everything, pour into sprayed 9X5 loaf pan.
  2. Generously sprinkle top with granola (I used honey/oat) and extra nuts if desired, I desired:@) Very gently press into top of batter.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. (Half of the recipe in 8x4 pan took about 45 minutes.)
  4. Let cool 10 minutes, loosen sides with knife, remove from pan, allow to cool before slicing. 

Eat well and have a happy day:@)
