To celebrate fall (and make good use of some bananas that were getting “soft”), I made 8 little loaves of banana bread the other day to share with neighbors. Here’s the recipe I use.
Banana Bread (makes 4 mini loaves)
2 1/2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. oil
3/4 c. milk
3 ripe bananas, mashed
chopped nuts or chocolate chips (optional)
Combine all ingredients (except nuts or chocolate chips) in a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed for about one minute. Then add the nuts or chocolate chips (I’m all about adding the chocolate!) and stir them in with a spoon. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350.
This recipe makes 4 mini loaves (I love the Pampered Chef mini loaf pan that’s a baking stone). You could also pour the mixture into a mini muffin pan. If you do the mini muffins, they only need about 10 minutes in the oven. Or you could do one large loaf of banana bread and that would take about an hour to bake.

My little friend, Makenzie Moore, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in her brain stem about a year and a half ago. Makenzie is such a rock, such a strength to her family & those who know her, and absolutely exudes light & joy. I’m blessed by her influence.
There is an event coming up on October 13th near Phoenix, and all proceeds benefit the National Brain Tumor Foundation. If you’re interested in participating in some way, check out this link. You’ll get to read Makenzie’s story and get all the information. Perhaps you’re able to make a small donation or, if you’re in AZ, even join Makenzie on the walk. I am so sad I won’t be able to be there for the walk (I’ll be in Orlando for our last CKU of the year).
