The Easiest Banana Bread Recipe

During this quarantine, it seems like everyone is making banana bread. I had two very ripe bananas in my kitchen and decided to get on the banana bread train. I am a very lazy baker so wanted to create a truly easy banana bread recipe. This recipe is so simple. You only need 6 simple ingredients to make this banana bread. To make it, all you need to do is blend ingredients and bake and you’ve got a healthy and delicious banana bread!

This banana bread tastes great by itself. I also like to eat mine topped with a slather of peanut butter.

If you have lots of ripe bananas to use, also checkout my Grain-Free Banana Bread Recipe. This banana bread recipe is grain-free as it uses almond, coconut, and tigernut flours.


Why I Love This Recipe:

  • This banana bread contains no added sugar- it is naturally sweetened by the bananas and dates!
  • This recipe is both gluten free and dairy free
  • You only need 6 simple ingredients to make this recipe
  • It’s so easy to make- all you need to do is blend ingredients and bake!

  1. Hello,
    I am allergic to nuts and was wondering if oat or dairy milk could be substituted for almond milk? Have you tried making this recipe using a different kind of milk? If yes what were the results?
    Thanks.
