The moistest, most flavorful Banana Bread you will ever have. EVER! Bold statement, I know, but ’tis the truth!

Hey Hey, you guys! Happy Saturday!

Did you see THE dress?! What do you think – is it blue/black, gold/white…uhm…purple/red?!
Honestly? I saw it in gold/white only twice, and blue/black the rest of the times. Aaaaand the rest of those times was, like, hellovalot! I haven’t opened up Facebook in two days (more like 2 hours….) ’cause I fear seeing that dang dress, again.

In other news… water is wet. 😉

So there used to be a nicely browned loaf of this banana bread sitting on my kitchen counter just two days ago??? <— insert “Clueless” voice.
It’s no longer there. I swallowed it.

Okay, wait. That’s not entirely true. I baked that loaf, packed it up and sent it with my husband to work. I couldn’t trust myself with it because days before I made the one that you’re staring at, and that one IS the one that I demolished. Not a crumb was left in the pan.

Ahem. Heavenly Father, THANK YOU for my treadmill.

Then again, it’s whole wheat so it counts as eating half of a loaf. Right? Right.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2- teaspoon salt
  • 3 overripe bananas , mashed
  • 2 eggs , beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2- cup melted coconut oil (measure about 1/3-cup solid coconut oil and melt it; this should give you roughly around 1/2-cup, which is the amount that you will need)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • LIghtly grease a 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and sprinkle with flour; set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine flours, baking soda and salt; whisk until combined and set aside.
  • Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl; add sugar and, using a large spoon, mix until combined.
  • Stir in beaten eggs and continue to mix until well incorporated.
  • Stir in coconut oil, stirring until incorporated.
  • Add flour mixture to the banana mixture and mix just until combined.
  • Transfer batter to previously prepared pan.
  • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack.
  • Remove bread from the pan.
  • Using a bread knife, slice the banana bread and serve.
  • Optional: Top slices with a sliver of butter and a drizzle of honey - it's heavenly!

Notes

Using a toothpick, start checking the bread in the oven around the 40-minute mark. Because of the whole wheat flour, the top of the bread will appear a darker brown; don't worry, the bread is not burnt.br]

  1. Delicious. I also use 1 heaped tablespoon and a hand full of dark chocolate chips in place of the sugar. And added a good sprinkle of cinnamon.
    Eaten week with some butter really taste good.

    Gotta love a simple, classic banana bread like this! I only saw gold and white with the dress. It would have been so cool and a little strange to see both.

  3. Wonderful, easy recipe! I used whole wheat pastry flour (no white flour), 1/2 C honey in place of sugar & added a little cinnamon. It was perfect! I make a lot of banana bread & this recipe will be my go-to from now on. Thanks!
    By the way, I weighed my coconut oil to be 4oz…in case anyone measures.

    The dress is a bit much for me at this point. I would much rather stare at pictures of this bread. Yum!
