Directions

Preheat the oven to 350*F.
Mist a loaf pan with oil.
In a large bowl, mash the 3 bananas with a fork until mostly smooth.
Add oil, and mix throughly.
Add baking powder and dash of salt to the mixture, and stir.
Add flour and stir until combined.
Pour batter into the loaf pan.

Enjoy this light fluffy banana bread right out of the oven, or after a few days.
I like to spread applesauce and sprinkle cinnamon on top.

    I added 1 cap vanilla extract, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, used brown sugar, used 1/4 cup applesauce instead of oil. Bread was great warm, and can't wait to try tomorrow morning toasted for breakfast. Thank you for posting this recipe! - 12/3/08

    I used whole wheat flour and subbed unsweetened applesauce for the oil in this recipe. it cut out about 40 calories and all the fat and made for a nice sweet bread. it's not as flavorful as traditional banana breads but the recommendation to serve with applesauce and cinnamon makes up for it. - 6/25/07

    I would use a sugar substitute and apple sauce instead of oil. Other wise this is a good banana bread. - 11/25/08

    Banana bread with three ripe bananas can easily take less sugar. 1/2 a cup is my recipe and I use Canola oil for all of my baking. My recipe calls for 1/4 cup oil. other than that its the same, grandkids make it and eat it for breakfast with frozen blueberries.Beat ripe nanas to liquid More flavor. - 5/10/10

    I am eating this right now, fresh from the oven. I like it. I will do it again, a little differently, but I like it. I didn't use the whole 2 cups of flour, it made less, plus I made muffins instead of bread. But, definitely worth it. THANKS! - 11/25/08

    I would recommend adding some spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Premixed "pumpkin" spice would be good. Also if you use real sugar try brown sugar. It realy changes the taste and colour. - 7/10/08

    @SharonFrances: If you add egg whites then it's no longer vegan which is the whole point of this recipe. There are plenty of non-vegan banana bread recipes out there. - 5/10/10

    this recipe did not say when to add the sugar or what degree to cook it at. Can someone fill in the missing parts for me. - 4/18/08

    Actually, for the record CHP4GOLF - vegan refers to no animal products, and most bread products have either dariy, or eggs in them...so being a vegetarian working towards Vegan, I appreciate the distinction. - 4/18/08

    This is fantastic!! I used whole wheat pastry flour, applesauce instead of oil, and reduced sugar to half a cup. I added a dash of vanilla and cinnamon, too. I ate it with almond butter spread on top, and it was delicious! - 7/21/10
