Poppy Seed Walnut Banana Bread

Poppy Seed Walnut Banana Bread is very soft, not too sweet, very dense and deliciously moist bread. It is one of my all time favorite snacks or quick breakfast. This poppy seed walnut banana bread contains lots of banana flavor, which pairs well with the poppy seeds. I added some grinded walnuts, which I happened to like more than when they are just chopped. Grinding them helped add extra depth to the dough texture, some subtle nuttiness and a heavier, stickier crumb. I also went heavy hand with the poppy seeds, to get some nice crunchiness, extra flavor, and it just makes the bread look so much more appetizing.
