Gather Your Ingredients:

  • 3-4 ripe bananas
  • ½ cup raw sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chip

Wow! This could be the easiest banana bread recipe on the earth…and the taste is absolutely heaven. The original recipe called for more sugar, but I cut it in half and used raw sugar to make it healthier.

Here’s What you Do:

Prep: Heat the oven, prep the pans

  • Preheat the Oven 325° degrees F
  • Spray a 9’ x 5” x 3” loaf pan with non-stick spray

Step 1: Mash the Bananas

  • Peel the bananas and place them in a large bowl. Using a fork or masher, mash the bananas (to the consistency of lumpy baby food!)

Step 2: Add the Remaining Ingredients

  •  Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix well. I used a wooden spoon to mix

Step 3: Pour Batter into Prepared Loaf Pan

Step 4: Bake in 325° for 1hour

  •  Once baked through, cool on a rack and then remove from the pan when cooled.

Cook’s Tips:

Looking for ways to save money and plan ahead?

Watch for store specials on overripe bananas. You can buy them at a fraction of the cost and freeze them by peeling the bananas and storing in a freezer-proof container.
