Who else just loves banana bread? For me, it’s right up there with carrot cake. When I was little I didn’t think that these “healthy” foods could make something so delicious. Obviously I was very wrong. Banana bread and carrot cake are two of my favorite things. So whenever I have bananas that are too ripe I either freeze them for smoothies or make Kodiak Cakes Banana Bread! It’s the best way to make sure that I don’t waste any of them.
Easy Breakfast or Snack
Banana bread can be a great way to start your day. Grab a slice and a cup of your favorite coffee or tea and let’s go! Honestly, the toughest thing about making banana bread is letting it cool before I dive into it. You can tell when it’s close to being done because it makes the kitchen smell so good. When I take it out of the oven and check it to make sure it’s done I can just barely wait to slice it up so I can taste it!
Quick & Easy
Grab your ingredients and lets get to baking! Once you’ve got some bananas that are too ripe to eat on their own, grab your cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, and Kodiak Cakes mix. There are a ton of different ways to make banana bread so even if you don’t have this baking mix, you can definitely find a quick and easy recipe online with other ingredients.
Banana bread is really a one bowl item. You can put all of your ingredients into one bowl, mix it well, and pour it into your prepared baking tin. Wash your dishes while it’s baking and by the time it’s ready to be pulled out of the oven, your kitchen will be clean and you’ll be ready to enjoy this delicious bread.
Nuts, Chocolate, or Both?
How do you like your banana bread? Do you prefer yours with chocolate chips or walnuts? I like all types of banana bread and I definitely to not discriminate. Luckily I don’t have any type of nut allergy so banana bread with walnuts in it is always a plus. My banana bread, because it’s usually not planned, will be made with whatever I have on hand. So, if I have nuts or chocolate chips on hand then I’ll throw some of those into the mix. If I don’t have any of those items, the banana bread is still just as delicious. You can’t go wrong with it. It’s soft, moist, tasty, and satisfying no matter what.Print
