Making banana bread is as easy as eating pie.
You can check in the reduced produce section of your grocer for old bananas, which are normally 50% off. Over ripe bananas work great. Normally I buy a bunch of bananas and before we can eat them all a few go bad. I through the over ripe ones in the freezer until I have enough to make bread with. Just make sure you thaw the bananas before you try mashing them.
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips or nuts (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake for 55-65 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean (unless you’ve used chocolate chips the toothpick will come out chocolaty)
You can also make 10 muffins from this recipe which is good if you don’t have much time! Grease or line 10 muffin cups with muffin papers and cook at 375 degrees F for 18- 20 minutes.
