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 the ingredients and bake and youโ€™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, which is made with almond, coconut, and tigernut flours, and Mint Chocolate Chip Nice Cream recipes.


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!

What You’ll Need to Make The Easiest Banana Bread:

Bananas: You, of course, can’t make banana bread without bananas! You will need two ripe bananas for this recipe. Ripe bananas work best when making banana bread because the bananas sweeten as they ripen.

Dates: This recipe contains no added sugar, it is naturally sweetened by the dates! Be sure to remove the pits from the dates before blending.

Almond Milk: I used almond milk in this recipe, but you can use any milk based on your preference. Look for an unsweetened variety if thatโ€™s available to you.

Rolled Oats: You will need rolled oats for this recipe. If you are gluten- free, be sure to purchase โ€˜gluten-free rolled oatsโ€™ as there is cross-contamination with regular oats.

Eggs: The eggs add protein to this recipe and also help the batter stick together.

Baking Soda: Baking soda is needed to help the banana bread rise.

Directions:

1. Ensure that the pits are removed from the dates. Blend the bananas dates and almond milk in a blender until smooth.

2. Add the 2 cups gluten free rolled oats to the blender and reblend.

3. Pour the contents of the blender into a bowl and mix in eggs and baking soda.

4. Pour batter into a bread pan over parchment paper and bake on 400 deg for 35-40 mins.

5. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 30 mins.

  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.
