Do you love fresh baked bread? How about fresh baked BANANA bread?
Then you're in luck! This no frills, simple and delicious Quick and Easy Banana Bread is sure to hit the spot.
Not only is it a great way to use up any overripe bananas you might have hanging out in your fruit basket, but it's a sure crowd pleaser. In fact, even our super picky almost teen kiddo loves it so much he begs me to whip up a batch almost weekly!
Enjoy it plain, topped with a bit of honey, or spread some of your favorite nut butter on a slice for a rich and creamy protein boost!
2 large bananas, mashed
1/3 C coconut oil, melted
1/2 C honey
1/4 C unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice or sub with water)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 & 3/4 C whole wheat flour (or sub with gluten free flour)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl combine melted coconut oil and honey with a hand mixer. Add eggs and beat well.
Next add the mashed banana and milk, whisk together using a large fork or standard whisk.
Add baking soda, vanilla and cinnamon and whisk well.
Stir in the flour, mixing with a large spoon until combined (it's okay if it is a bit lumpy).
Pour batter into a greased bread pan (I like to lightly coat mine with coconut oil) and bake on the middle rack for 40min.
After 40min. move the pan to the top rack and cook another 5min.
Remove pan from oven and let the bread cool before removing it from the pan.
Eat and Enjoy!
