Banana bread is one of those classic recipes that I especially love, since it makes me feel a lot less guilty about bananas that have sat and gone bad on the kitchen counter! It’s also makes a great snack or dessert and it’s easy to whip up whenever you feel like having it!


  • Servings: 8-10
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 2 overripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Use cooking spray to grease loaf pan.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mash bananas until smooth.
  4. Add the melted butter and egg, mixing with paddle attachment.
  5. Add the baking soda, sugar, flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and continue mixing until batter is a creamy consistency.
  6. Pour batter into loaf pan.
  7. Bake for about 40 minutes and check doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center. If the bread is not done, bake for an additional 5 minutes. Oven times may vary.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 15 minutes. Can be served immediately or stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    This is a bit different from my gran’s recipe. She would add walnuts. But I will give this a try!
