My Favorite Banana Bread Recipe
My kids looooooove Banana Bread. It’s an acceptable breakfast or snack, especially when smeared with a healthy amount of cream cheese or butter. My favorite recipe was adapted from my mother’s traditional recipe to include more bananas and substitute coconut oil for traditional shortening (because I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had shortening in my house…).
Tips for Banana Bread newbies:
- Overripe bananas are key. Bananas must be past ripe to be acceptable Banana Bread candidates. The browner, the mushier, the better.
- Banana Bread is better the next day. Store tightly wrapped in the refrigerator overnight.
- Have extra ripe bananas? Considering freezing the remainder for smoothies!
