My Favorite Banana Bread

One of my favorite things to do around the holidays is to bake. I usually start making my banana bread around Thanksgiving because it is always a hit! It’s a fun breakfast or snack and I make it throughout the December holiday season.

I don’t want this post to turn into a long story about how I came about this recipe, but I can say that I do a few different things than a traditional banana bread recipe calls for so I would love for you try it!


Prep: 10 minutes 

Cook Time: 50-60 minutes

2 medium very ripe bananas
1/3 cup of melted butter
1/2 TSP of baking soda
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup of white sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 TSP of maple syrup
1 + 1 /2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2-1 cup of chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or walnuts (optional)  


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Mash ripe bananas with a fork or potato masher until smooth. Stir melted butter into the bananas.
Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, egg, flour, and maple syrup.
Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once done, remove from oven and let cool completely, you can check the bread with a fork to check firmness.
Slice and enjoy!
