If you have been looking for an EASY Banana Bread recipe, you’ve come to the right place!  I have tried several banana bread recipes and this one is the easiest and only requires basic ingredients that you should have in your pantry.

Banana Bread Recipe

Homemade Banana Bread

I’ve made several banana bread recipes in my life and this one has officially replaced all others! I first made it years ago for brunch with some friends, and not only did it get rave reviews, it was also super simple to make! This easy banana bread recipe doesn’t call for any strange ingredients, in fact I usually have everything on-hand. (No need to run to the store for buttermilk – yay!)  Once you try this classic banana bread recipe, you’ll never stop making it.

When To Make Banana Bread

I always try to keep a variety of fruit on hand for my kids to have as a healthy snack.  However, it seems like whenever I buy bananas, they go from being perfect to over-ripe in a few days.  If your family is like mine, once those bananas turn brown, they won’t touch them.  I hate throwing these bananas away, so lately I’ve decided to make this banana bread recipe instead.

I’m thinking you should totally bookmark it for the next time you find yourself with bananas that are too ripe! (You can thank me later!).  This recipe will make give you the most moist and DELICIOUS banana bread you have ever tasted.

Banana Bread Mix Ins

While I love a simple banana bread recipe, you don’t have to limit yourself to just using bananas.  My husband loves banana bread with nuts but my kids love it when I add chocolate chips to the recipe.  Here are a few simple suggestions to enhance your banana bread.  I would recommend adding no more than one cup to your recipe.

  • Chocolate chips
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Blueberries
  • Coconut
