Banana Bread is more than just bread. It is a healthy option for all diet-conscious people while being delicious at the same time. The best part about banana bread is that you can actually store it for up to five days without going stale, and if you want to enjoy it longer, you can easily freeze the slices and enjoy them later.

If you haven’t tried banana bread, then you are really missing out. And if you love to bake, take a look at these banana bread recipes, which you must try at least once.

Instruction

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour an 8.5×4.5-inch loaf pan or spray with baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas with the melted butter, then add the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Stir well with a large wooden spoon.

2. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

If you like your dessert extra sweet, then this combination of peanut butter and chocolate chips in banana bread is for you.

Ingredients

  •  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  •  cup mashed banana about 3-4 bananas
  • 1/2 cup applesauce unsweetened or sweetened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup canola OR vegetable oil2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350°. Spray two 8×4-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.  You can also use 4-5 miniature loaf pans instead. There is too much batter for just one 9×5-inch loaf pan, so don’t try and do that.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Stir with a whisk to break up any clumps.
  3. In a separate smaller bowl, combine the mashed bananas, applesauce, peanut butter, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Use a whisk (I use the same one from before) and mix it.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir together with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Divide the batter between the two pans. Each pan should only be about half full. Sprinkle some additional chocolate chips on top (if wanted).
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Cover loosely with foil (just lay a piece of tin foil over the top of the loaf pans) for the last 15 minutes of cooking, so the bread does not get too brown.
  7. Let the bread cool in the pan for about 15-20 minutes and then take it out and let cool on a cooling rack completely. Or eat a piece warm with butter! Yum!
