This banana bread recipe is the best I’ve ever tasted and will melt in your mouth at first bite. Not only is it sweet and moist (you’ll love the hint of cinnamon) but quick and easy to make! It’s perfect for everyone with a healthy option that uses honey instead of sugar. Most homemade bread recipes take hours to make but this one is fast and simple because there’s no yeast and no kneading. It’s perfect for breakfast, snack or as a dessert…and there may not be any leftovers after your first bite. So what are you waiting for? Grab your loaf pan and let’s get baking!
This has been my go-to banana bread recipe for years. Whenever I have bananas that are almost past the point of no return, I whip out this recipe. Not only do I love the fact that it takes under 15 minutes to get this bread in the oven but it also freezes well which makes it perfect to make and enjoy later!
Super Moist Banana Bread
3 medium Bananas
3/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 tablespoon Cinnamon (less if you’re not a fan of cinnamon)
Substitute 1/2 cup of honey for the sugar.
- Preheat your oven to 350.
- Mash your bananas. (I generally use bananas that are almost brown so they are nice and soft. I place them in the mixer and they mash while I’m getting the rest of the ingredients together.)
- Add the egg, sugar (or honey) and cooking oil to your bananas.
- Add the dry ingredients to your banana mixture and stir just until moistened.
- Spray the bottom and sides of a loaf pan with cooking spray. Cook for 50-55 minutes, or until a cake tester (or toothpick) inserted in middle comes out clean.
- Allow pan to cool for 10 minutes on a cooling rack.
- To remove the bread from the pan, first run a butter knife around the edges of the bread (this will ensure that the bread isn’t stuck to the pan.) Turn the pan over onto your wire rack and your beautiful loaf of bread should come out clean as a whistle.
- Allow your bread to fully cool on your wire rack.
