THIS is the Banana Bread You Need to Make Next

Happy Sunday, friends! If you have some brown bananas laying around, I have just the recipe for you!

As you might remember, no food goes to waste in our house, so when we had two very sad bananas, dying a slow death, in our fruit bowl, I knew exactly how to save their lives: banana bread! Mal and Quinn both lovvvveee banana bread, but not the “healthy” kind that I usually bake with almond flour, ground flax, chia seeds, coconut oil, yada yada. They like their banana bread, straight-up, no funny stuff, so that’s exactly what I gave them!

And I know there are thousands of banana bread recipes on the internet, but THIS is the one you should try next. It’s soft and chewy, sweet and delicious, and I’m pretty sure it’s the best banana bread I’ve ever made. I hope you and your family love it as much as we do!

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe medium-large bananas
  • 2.5 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Be sure to mash up and blend bananas. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or coat with non-stick cooking spray. Pour batter into pan, spread evenly with a spatula, and then bake for 40-45 minutes or until top is lightly browned and bread is cooked all the way through. Allow to cool slightly before slicing and serving.

  1. I am making this right now as I text this comment,&, I’ve made it a couple of weeks ago. And it was Awesome tasting! Which is why I’m baking this Again!

  2. I love banana bread! It’s a good pre-workout snack when I actually remember I made some! How do you store yours after baking?

  3. I tried this yesterday but I swapped out the butter for coconut oil. Just can’t get out of the health kick.. and it came out perfect. Oh and it was delicious too. Thanks for the idea!

  4. We love banana bread in our house too! I often make Emily’s recipe from dailygarnish.com. It is the one she has with blueberries and walnuts. We skip the nuts due to allergies and swap the blueberries for chocolate chips, but the base ingredients are healthy without necessarily tasting that way. 😉

  5. Perfect timing, I have some brown bananas sitting in my kitchen. Lately I have been toasting walnuts in brown sugar and cinnamon to chuck on top of banana bread while it cooks. Takes it to the next level!

  6. I saw you mention this recipe on a more recent blog post, that you made muffins with Quinn! I had a pile of bananas that need used up before vacation, so I whipped up this recipe for muffins too. WOW This might be the tastiest banana bread/muffin recipe I have ever made!!! Tips for fellow readers- I doubled the recipe and used GF flour, baked at 375 for 18 min and it made 18 regular sized muffins.

    Thanks for always creating yummy food for us!
