I’m not much of a rule follower in the kitchen, often substituting ingredients, not measuring exactly, not reading recipe instructions before I start, or estimating time in the oven! I love this banana bread recipe because even with these bad habits, this banana bread always seems to turn out and is often a crowd-pleaser. Not too sweet, very moist, and all in all pretty healthy!
I have adapted this recipe from Oh She Glows to include a few more common baking ingredients found in most pantries and hey – if you don’t have one of the ingredients, I’m sure even with a quick substitute it will all work out! I often change up the toppings on the loaf, sometimes banana slices, chocolate chips, or nuts and sometimes when I’m feeling extra sweet, I mix in some chocolate chips with the batter.
You can mix all the ingredients in one bowl and it should only take about 15 minutes before it’s ready to pop in the oven. The hardest part is waiting for the loaf to cook and cool before you eat it!
