2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (5 medium)

1/2 cup cooking oil or melted butter
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Streusel-Nut Topping
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tbsps. all-purpose flour
2 tbsps. butter
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Greast bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of one 9x5x3 inch loaf pan; set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.

In a medium bowl combine eggs, bananas, sugar and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir until moistened, batter should be lumpy. Fold in nuts. Spoon batter into prepared pan.

Streusel Topping
In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup brown sugar and 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour. Using a pastry blender, cut in 2 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. Sprinkle Streusel topping over banana mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. You may want to cover with foil for last 15 minutes to prevent burning. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and then remove to wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing.
