Banana Bread

This is the best ever EASY banana bread recipe with a super MOIST and tender texture and tons of sweet banana flavor. Everyone loves it! You’ll never need another recipe.

Sometimes it’s the simplest things you crave most. Like banana bread.

I remember the first time I had a good loaf as a kid. A neighbor gave us a loaf and I was skeptical. It had nuts and fruit… two things most kids are not looking for in a treat.

But I took a bite anyway … and I absolutely loved that bread!

So I made it my mission to create my own BEST banana bread recipe. I find this recipe to be sweet without being cloying, and perfectly moist.

This recipe is so easy, and it doesn’t even require a stand mixer or hand mixer. It’s the perfect quick bread.

Bonus points: it smells heavenly while it’s baking in the oven! This bread would be the perfect homemade gift for a neighbor, teacher, coworker, or friend – and it’s also the perfect snack, breakfast, or dessert to enjoy yourself.
