Banana Bread Recipe

If you're like me, you're constantly buying fruits and veggies. We are so lucky that Tinley has such a good appetite, and eats pretty much everything. She's always willing to try new things too. I can only hope Crew is as good of an eater as his sister. 

When I was pregnant, all I wanted to eat were fruits and veggies. And salads. And a few sweets here and there, especially at the end. So when my girlfriend made banana bread, it satisfied my cravings for fruits and something sweet. I knew I had to get that recipe! 

After all, I always have at least 2 bananas that end up getting a little too ripe; which make them perfect for bread!

So, here's the quick and easy recipe for delicious homemade banana bread. Trust me, if I can do it, anyone can!


2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
2 1/3 cups mashed over-ripe bananas (I have used 2 and 3. It just depends on how strong you want the banana flavor!)
cinnamon sugar


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x5 loaf pan

In a large bowl, combing the flour, baking soda, and salt

In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar 

Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well-blended

Stir banana mixture into flour mixture until it's just moistened

Pour loaf into pan and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top

Bake 60-65 minutes, let cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan

And there you have it! You can also add chopped pecans or walnuts for added flavor and crunch. I most recently made a loaf and added chocolate chips. Talk about sinful!

Even T approves! :o)

Have a great weekend everyone!
