Banana Bread

What to do with a box full of ripe bananas?  Make banana bread, of course!  I have never baked banana bread before, mainly on account of not liking bananas.  But I had to do something with all this curved yellow fruit, even it was just to make hubby a bit fat from eating a ton of bananary baked goods.  As it turns out, I like banana bread.  Alot.  So this recipe is going to be a regular feature in our kitchen – I dare you to not like it!  Apparently you can freeze it too, but ours didn’t last long enough 🙂

Incase you’re after other banana recipes, I have a couple more on this blog that have also passed my “I didn’t think I liked bananas until I tried this!” test: Banana Split Cupcakes and Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies.

Banana Bread

Banana Bread


  • 1/2 cup almond milk (you could use any non-dairy milk)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups whole wheat plain flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (I just used another 1/2 cup raw sugar)
  • 3/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed


  • Preheat oven to 175c.  Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine milk and apple cider vinegar.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugars, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Add milk and vinegar combination to the dry ingredients, followed by the vanilla extract and bananas. Stir until combined, but do not over mix.
  • Pour into greased loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes (I did it for 60 mins), or until a toothpick comes out clean.
