If you’re a mom like me, you always have bananas in the house. And if you shop at Costco like me, you always have a LOT of bananas in the house. Which means, they usually go ripe and brown before being eaten. No need to fret, this is the prefect ingredient for one bowl banana bread!
One Bowl Banana Bread
One Bowl Banana Bread is a go-to staple. Kids love to eat it for breakfast or a snack, and it’s easy to eat on the run. I have tried out tons of banana bread recipes in my time, but I have managed to create my favorite. And the best part, it’s super easy to make and is actually a much healthier version than you’ll find at the coffee shops.
The secret to make this super healthy are the flax and chia seeds! I love them because they add a lot of fiber but don’t alter the flavor. So I can add them to the recipe without my family knowing… score!
Make in one bowl and pour into greased pan… so easy!
The other great part, one bowl! Yes, I know. You should mix the dry ingredients and then add them to the wet, but honestly, I’ve done it both ways and I never can tell the difference. As long as you incorporate wet and dry together well and don’t over mix the batter, you are good to go. Unless you like to wash extra bowls… yeah, I didn’t think so.
