This Extra Banana Banana Bread lives up to its name! Stuffed with a full five bananas, this bread is moist and rich and is perfect any time of the day. It's perfect as-is, but try it lightly toasted with a smear of cream cheese for an extra special treat!
Serves: 18 slices
Ingredients
  • 5 large bananas, very ripe
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5 teaspoons butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup milk (regular, almond, soy, coconut will work)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x5x3” loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Peel and mash 3 bananas. Peel and cut the remaining 2 bananas into chunks. Set the bananas aside.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. In another bowl, combine butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat to incorporate.
  5. Alternating in batches, add the mashed bananas, flour mixture and milk with the butter/sugar mixture. Do not over beat. Fold in the banana chunks.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Allow bread to cool in pan for 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
