Easy to Make and The Best Banana Bread Recipe

I love homemade breads. I have no preference to flavor, but there is something almost nostalgic about making your own breads at home. I love the how the scent of sweetness fills the house. I like to make my breads while the kids are in school so they can come home to a yummy smelling home.
My mom used to do this for me and it always made the day better.
Today, I want to share the best banana bread recipe that is super easy to make. To be honest, I cant take all the credit, I actually searched various websites taking parts  of different banana bread recipes from here and there and putting my own spin on things until I found the perfect recipe.
I encourage you to try this very easy to bake banana bread and tweak it if you want to what fits for you.
Sometimes I make it in loaf pans and sometimes I use muffin cups. Muffin cups are great to add to gift baskets for teachers, neighbors, friends or co-workers.
I have also doubled this recipe and it works out just fine.

*Preheat oven to 375 degrees
*Be sure to grease loaf pans or use muffin cup liners


1 & 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

3 Medium/Large Very Ripe Bananas
1 Egg
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract


In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients.
In a large separate bowl, mash bananas, oil, vanilla an egg.
(I use a hand mixer on low)
Add dry ingredients slowly into wet ingredients until just until moistened
Pour into greased loaf pan or fill muffin cups half full

Bake for 15-22 minutes or until golden brown and  a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes and remove from pan

You can add almost anything you want to this recipe. Feel free to add a half cup of raisins or walnuts for an even better taste and consistency. My favorite thing to add is about a half to whole cup of blueberries. OMG! It was to die for, so moist and tasty.

Please let me know if you try it and what your thoughts are by leaving a comment.

    1. If you like blueberries, I would recommend adding them in right at the end after you mixed the batters together. Delicious!
