Banana Bread


Posted on October 8th, by Amy in random. 10 comments

Our local grocery takes ripe/bruised bananas and marks them way down. All 4 of my kids love bananas, so getting home with a bunch of bananas can be challenging, many times I’m left with 1, especially when we are walking. And so I have a hard time passing these up!I usually feed them a few and then make banana bread with the rest. I stocked up big time :) I’ve been a little unhappy with one recipe and decided to try the stand-by that I grew up with – it was better than I remembered. The crust is just the right golden color, and crunchy, while the inside is moist and delish.

I thought I would share the recipe – I love how simple it is, and on the low-fat side :)

Banana Nut Bread
2 1/2 C flour
1 C sugar
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 TB vegetable oil
3/4 C milk
1 C mashed bananas (2-3 medium)
1 egg
1 C finely chopped nuts

Heat your oven to 350 and grease 1 large or 2 small loaf pans.
Measure all ingredients into large mixer bowl; beat on medium until just combined.
Pour into pans and bake 55-65 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

It is so easy! I have a large Kitchen Aid and easily doubled the recipe with 2 large loaf pans. I think my next batch may be muffins. I hope you try it – it is so yummy :)

  1. Yum — I LOVE banana bread! Thanks for the recipe — I haven’t been happy with my standby so I’ve been collecting new ones to try!

  2. wow Amy!! that looks so good! I’ll have to try your recipe! My standby is one from cooks illustrated that uses fat-free sour cream but I’ll have to give yours a go next time I make it. I love taking day-old banana nut bread and toasting it and slathering it with butter for breakfast. YUM!
