Banana bread is one of the most beloved baked goods, and for good reason. It’s easy to make, comforting, and delicious. Whether you’re looking for a quick breakfast or an afternoon snack, banana bread is the perfect choice. This banana bread recipe will give you a moist, fluffy result that is always a hit and will usually be gone before it gets into the fridge. I usually let it sit on the counter covered for a day or two before moving it into the fridge. But in most cases, it never does. This bread is my favourite snack any time of the day. I enjoy it with a glass of milk or chai tea just before bed:) It is also great to bring to work to share with your co-workers or to any potluck. To make this bread, you will need;

Tips:

– Use over-ripe bananas for the best flavour. The riper the bananas, the sweeter and more flavorful your bread will be. Previously frozen bananas are the best. Instead of getting rid of over-ripe bananas, freeze and use them for this recipe. Let them thaw on the kitchen counter for about 3 hours before baking.

Storage

This banana bread will last on the counter for 2 days. After that, it can stay in the fridge for another 2 days. I would recommend cutting it into slices, wrapped in individual saran wraps then onto a Ziploc bag and freezing it for up to 3 months.

Variations

  • For texture and flavour, you can add 1/2 cup of pecans, dried fruit or chocolate chips
  • Swap out the sugar for monk fruit/erythritol sweetener, or brown sugar.
  • Use half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat for a healthier version.
  • You can use the recipe for banana muffins. Just scoop the batter into muffin tins instead.

In conclusion, banana bread is an easy and delicious baked good that can be enjoyed anytime. With this simple recipe, you can make a moist and flavorful bread that your family and friends will love. Give it a try and enjoy the comforting aroma of freshly baked banana bread in your home.
