- 4 Ripe Bananas – mashed
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 tbsp Melted Butter
- 1 cup Flour – I am using an Organic Whole Wheat Flour by King Arthur
- ½ cup Brown Sugar
- ½ tsp Kosher Salt
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees.
Mash the bananas using a fork and a mixing bowl. You can use an electrical mixer for faster and easier results.
Add the eggs to the mixing bowl of mashed bananas.
Add vanilla extract and melted butter to the bananas – mix and set wet ingredients aside.
In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
Now add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and fold or mix slowly.
Grease your baking tins with butter or cooking spray according to your preference. Transfer the mixture in your bake-ware.
Depending on the size of your bake-ware, bake for 40-45 minutes. Do the toothpick test to make sure it is fully cooked through. Take a toothpick and put it halfway through the baked loaf. If it comes out clean without the mixture sticking to it, consider your banana bread done!
