A very simple, classic banana bread recipe that my 7 year old makes that gets rave reviews by everyone! *NOTE: HEALTHIER VERSION ALSO POSTED* A very simple, classic banana bread recipe that my 7 year old makes that gets rave reviews by everyone! *NOTE: HEALTHIER VERSION ALSO POSTED*
Number of Servings: 12


    1-1/2 c. white flour
    1 c. white sugar
    1 tsp. baking soda
    3 small very ripe bananas, mashed
    1/2 c. canola oil
    2 eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla extract

    *Optional: add 1/4-1/2 c. chopped walnuts for banana nut bread/muffins!


*Makes 1 loaf, or 12 muffins (Serving size= 1/12 recipe*

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, and baking soda) in a bowl.
3. Combine the wet ingredients (the bananas, oil, eggs, and vanilla) in another bowl.
4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until the batter is well combined. If making banana nut bread/muffins, stir in the chopped walnuts.
5. Pour the batter into a coated (with nonstick cooking spray) loaf pan or muffin tins (liners are recommended).
6. If making a loaf, bake for one hour. For muffins, about 20-25 minutes should be fine.
7. Once the bread or muffins are ready, DIG IN!

Great for breakfast, snack time, dessert, or any time of the day!

*I know this is not a very healthy recipe, but it's an AMAZING indulgence that takes no time to prepare! (Don't forget about the lower calorie one I also posted though!)

    Good recipe. I switched out half the flour for whole wheat, the oil for unsweetened apple sauce and keep the walnuts for those omega 3's. It came out great. - 8/17/08

    Just made them for the third or fourth time for my students and staff at school, last time I posted on facebook, one of the social workers was down my wing 3 times! The kids say they are "fire" the new term for good . I make them with only a half a cup of sugar and all are happy with them. - 3/12/19
