One-Bowl Banana Bread

Mar 2, 2016

Everyone needs a good, basic banana bread in their repertoire—dress it up with a handful of chocolate chips or nuts, fresh or frozen berries or a shake of cinnamon and raisins.

You Will Need:

  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola, olive or flax oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or half all-purpose, half whole wheat, oat or barley flour)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chopped nuts (optional)

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas, sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla with a potato masher - don't worry about getting all the lumps out.

3. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir until almost combined; add any additions and stir just until blended.

4. Spread into a greased or parchment-lined loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes, until golden and cracked on top and springy to the touch.

Makes 1 loaf.
