adapted by There's Always Thyme to Cook

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 1/3 cups mashed bananas (about 3 medium bananas)
1 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts

Set the oven rack in the middle position. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a 9 X 5 X 3-inch loaf pan with a strip of parchment and coat the pan and the liner with cooking spray. (I used butter!)

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.

Cream butter and both sugars in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add egg and bananas and combine. Add sifted dry ingredients. Fold in nuts.

Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until loaf comes out clean. Cool on rack. Store covered with paper towel and wax paper at room temperature.
