Baking has been a hobby of mine for the last couple of years and I can honestly say that I LOVE it. Nothing beats making something delicious and enjoying it with loved ones. Which is why I’m so excited to share this recipe with y’all! I make this banana bread on a pretty regular basis. Both my husband and 19 month old son love it, which is pretty big win in my house. You can make it plain, with chocolate chips, walnuts, etc. It’s moist, rich, and SO. FREAKIN’. EASY.
One of my biggest pet peeves when I look up recipes is having to scroll passed a thousand word essay just to find the instructions. So, I’m not going to do that. Below you’ll find the ingredients and simple instructions. ENJOY!
1 cup sugar
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup butter, melted
4 large, overripe bananas
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. Vanilla extract
1 cup mini chocolate chips or walnuts.
Preheat oven to 350
Place overripe bananas in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment and mix until the bananas are completely mashed and runny.
*If you don’t have a stand mixer, a hand mixer will work just fine!
Combine your sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla to the mashed bananas. Mix well.
Slowly add in your flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix well.
Remove bowl from stand and gently stir in your chocolate chips using a rubber spatula.
Grease your pan and pour in batter.
Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
*TIP: Lightly coating the walnuts in flour before adding them to the batter will keep them from sinking to the bottom.
