Banana Bread

My younger brothers love bananas. They also love my homemade banana bread. Truthfully, I don’t like bananas. If I am hungry and all there is to eat are bananas, I would wait. And the funny thing is, my husband is the same way. But, you know what? We absolutely love this banana bread!  It is delicious and nutritious – and best of all a great snack or breakfast addition when we’re on the go. So, whether you love bananas or despise them, this recipe just may be a winner. 

(For most people, banana bread without nuts in it simply isn’t an option – however, my husband is allergic to most nuts, so I just leave them out. But, if you love nuts – add a handful or two of chopped pecans.)


3 ripe bananas

1/3 c melted butter

3/4 c sugar 

1 egg

1-2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

2 tsp baking powder

1 and 1/2 c all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350°F

Mash bananas with fork till smooth (sometimes it is hard to make them perfectly smooth – just do the best you can). Add remaining ingredients except flour and baking powder. Mix well. Add baking powder and flour. Mix well. Pour into 9×9 baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
