  • Hey I a very 12 yr and I made this for my family and it will be reallly good I believe it will can not wait to try it it was really easy to make and fun too


  • This is my go to recipe! The only difference is that I’m not big on chunky banana bread so I blend my wet ingredients together in my blendtec blender and then I add my dry ingredients and blend for three more seconds. The result was a light, fluffy crumb with a perfect golden crust! Also makes AMAZING French toast!


  • This is so yummy! And so easy. I used almond milk. This is a keeper – thank you for sharing! Couldn’t hold off until the next day but we did save some. 🙂


  • This is my 4th time making this. Simply amazing. I use soy milk, gluten free flour, and coconut oil instead of butter. Still turns out perfect! Thank You so much for a brilliant and SIMPLE recipe! You are impeccable.


  • Sometimes the internet is seriously the best. I had one raggedy banana that I didn’t want to waist so I googled ‘1 banana banana bread recipe’. And here it is! It’s in the oven right now. And I’ll spend my cooking time poking around the rest of your awesome blog!


  • This was GREAT but…….I messed with your recipe (ya, sorry……..head hung in shame) I did indeed have 1 RIPE banana and I did follow your recipe (for the most part) I switched out the milk for organic coconut milk, cut the sugar back to 1/2 C. light brown and added some crushed pineapple with juice. This bread is FABULOUS and what a great way to use up that lone, ripe banana! It’s PERFECT and going in my big book for future use. Thank you so much for this one! *OH! I thinly sliced my banana and quite frankly I think 2 would have been just fine and maybe next time I will add some coconut?*
