Mom’s Banana Bread Recipe

Banana bread is a classic and we had some perfectly ripened bananas (nice and brown), which makes the flavour better.  It is a classic because it’s great comfort food and is always fun to make when there are extra bananas lying around the house.  I feel like this recipe could be made healthier next time by adding in some chia seeds, but I wasn’t able to go out to the grocery store today.

The recipe is super easy, just add the dry ingredients and mix well with a fork, beat egg in a separate bowl and then mix in with the other wet ingredients all at once.  It only takes one bowl, and a pot to melt the butter, which is nice.  I love recipes that make less mess and whip up quickly.  In addition the smell of warm banana bread is always welcome in the house.  I would recommend this as one my favourite recipes and a real treasure for a relaxing breakfast with a hot cup of tea or coffee.

Why buy banana bread at a bakery when you can make it yourself? Seriously.  Enjoy!
