I see no problem with cashews.

I usually just add chocolate chips if I don't have enough nuts, because I always have chocolate chips on hand. Mighty tasty! DH doesn't even like nuts in his banana bread, and would rather have the chocolate chips anyway.

I used cashews in banana nut bread and felt that it was a waste of perfectly good cashews. It didn't spoil the banana bread, but the cashews were awfully bland and too soft.

Well, I have PLENTY of those! Too late though.

Well, to my surprise, the cashews really didn't add much at all to the taste of the bread. Not bad at all, just kind of a non-flavor. The pecans really have more flavor when baked. Interesting experiment. Thanks to all for the input! Now I have one big loaf and two small loaves in the freezer for the future. One big loaf and one small loaf are sliced for eating right now.

Mine softened up alot, too. Probably because of all the oil they contain.

Okay, it wasn't just me. That's what I found too, as mentioned in the previous post. Makes me reluctant to use pistachios in baked goods.

I even corrected it from pistachios.

Just remember to keep the chocolate chips in mind for next time. Sorry I chimed in so late with my suggestion.
