Bangin' Banana Bread Recipe

Updated: Aug 21, 2019

Let me start by saying- I was never a huge fan of banana bread. #truestory

But multiple facets of my recent life have conspired to convince me that I should attempt a few recipes and see if my picky self and even pickier children might actually like banana bread after all!

Turns out the answer is a resounding YES! (But it took a few attempts to get there, haha!)

This is the BEST Banana Bread I have ever tasted in my life. Yum!!


Here's the recipe that we all ended up loving!

Ingredients:

1-3/4 cups unbleached flour

1-1/4 cups sugar

1 heaping teaspoon baking soda

2 large eggs, room temperature

2 medium ripe bananas, smashed

1/2 cup olive oil or oil of choice

1/2 cup whole milk (you may substitute buttermilk, coconut milk etc)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)

Additional chopped walnuts with 1/2 teaspoon sugar mixed in (optional)


Directions:

1: In a large bowl. stir together flour, sugar and baking soda.

2: In another bowl, combine the eggs, bananas, oil, milk and vanilla.

3: Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture, stirring just until combined.

4: Fold in nuts and chocolate chips if desired.

5: Separate and pour into 2 greased 9" x 5" loaf pans.

6: Bake at 325 degrees for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until toothpick comes out clean.

7: Cool on a wire rack.

8: Eat up!!!


Note: I love sprinkling a little extra crushed nuts and sugar on top for extra texture and crunch. I recommend doing this after your banana bread has been in the oven for 30 minutes so they don't sink to the bottom!
