The Ultimate Moist Banana Bread Recipe

December 6, 2018


The ultimate moist banana bread recipe. Seriously the only banana bread recipe you're going to need from here on out!

Before sharing this recipe I need to issue an apology to all of you.  I’m so sorry, from the bottom of my heart, for using the word moist in this post.  That word is gross and yucky and has no right to exist.  BUT…  This seriously is the ultimate moist banana bread recipe and there really are no good synonyms for moist so there we go.

How many of you out there have littles like mine?  You go to the grocery store and they beg for bananas.  They act as if the only love of their lives are bananas and you would be a cruel mom if you didn’t buy some for them.  Into your cart go a dozen or so bananas because you’re sure your kids will devour them at every meal and snack time too.  Surely this time not a single banana will go bad.  After getting home, all of a sudden your children are on banana strikes and the thought of eating one of those pieces of fruit disgusts them so much and you’re the worst mom in the world for even suggesting it.  I really, truly hope it’s not only my kids!  😉

If you are one of those mamas who can relate, you know the struggle of having way too many overripe bananas sitting in your freezer (waste not want not, amiright?).  I’m queen of using all the food in the fridge, pantry, and freezer and I’ve perfected the recipe for banana bread that’s so moist (there’s that word again… sorry!) you’ll want to gobble up the whole loaf on your own.
