Banana Bread

A while ago, one of my friends brought a fantastic loaf of banana bread to clinic. Naturally, I had to get the recipe from her and try it out. It's so simple and easy to make, and my favorite part is that there is no eggs or milk in this recipe.

  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour

  • 0.5 tsp baking soda

  • 4 bananas (or 3 if they're super long)

  • chocolate chips (I used 1/2 bag of milk chocolate chips)

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • throw in toffee bits or walnuts if desired

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Mush up the bananas + mix all the ingredients. The moisture from the bananas turns it into a gooey mix that can easily go into your bread pan. Line pan with butter or cooking spray and pour mix into pan.

Pop into the oven for ~70 mins, and enjoy!

Note: Something I noticed from experience, the shallower the mixture ends up being in the bread pan, the better. In other words, you would rather have a long bread pan with a thinner layer of mixture than a short and deep one. In my one experience using a deep bread pan (one of the individual loaf foil pans), the top burned and the inside stayed forever uncooked (after 2.5 hrs in the oven) and it was very depressing.

All the ingredients (should have mushed the bananas beforehand)


...and after!
