My favorite banana bread recipe. I love that there is no added oils or fats. Sometimes I sub self-rising flour for the flour, baking soda and baking powder.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas.
  2. Add the egg, buttermilk, brown sugar and vanilla.
  3. Whisk all together until egg yoke has broken and mixture is well mixed.
  4. In a large bowl, measure the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Whisk all together until thoroughly mixed.
  6. Stir in the liquid ingredients just until all dry ingredients are moistened. There will be lumps.
  7. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan (9" x 5").
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
  9. Test for doneness with toothpick inserted into middle of loaf - it should come out clean.
  10. Cool loaf in pan for 5 minutes, then carefully turn out onto a rack to cool thoroughly.
  11. Can be stored at room temperature if you're going to eat it up within a couple of days.
  12. Otherwise store in the fridge.
