Fresh Banana Bread

August 10, 2016

I can’t believe it’s almost time to get the kids ready to head back to school. The very first day of class we are all so excited that we’re kind of running around in circles. I’m putting lunches together and making sure everyone is dressed and ready to go and my oldest kids are helping the younger ones pack their backpacks.

This is where my favorite breakfast recipe comes in. Banana bread. My kids love homemade banana bread, and on a morning like this one, it’s priority to me that my kids get a good breakfast—no matter how much time we don’t have.

The best part about this recipe is that it can be made the night before, and then warmed up in the oven or microwave when it’s time to eat. This bread, with a big glass of milk, is always a hit in my house. It’s quick, it’s easy and, with only 9 ingredients, you really can’t mess it up. It’s best served warm with a pat of butter on top.

Fresh Banana Bread

This recipe works best with really ripe bananas, so when I’m planning to make this recipe, I’ll buy a few extra bananas on my grocery store run the week before to give them time to go soft.

Let me know if you have a go-to back to school recipe that’s simple to throw together the night before. And be sure to post a picture on Instagram if you try this one out!

      1 stick of butter= 1/2 cup or 4 ounces or 113 grams.

    I made this and while the flavor was good, I don't suggest a glass or ceramic pan. It didn't cook through the middle.

    Love,love,love your show and all your beautiful home decor. I do wonder why you have business dealings with Target. They are not family friendly. Since they insist on transgender dressing rooms, we have not shopped Target. Please rethink that business decision and try to influence them to consider childrens safety first.

      Wow hate is a real thing, Get over it Dolores - for real what does this even have to do with banana bread?! Joanna you keep doing what you do honey! There are some out there that can’t get beyond their own barriers - it doesn’t mean you should hold back your light

      I totally agree with you! It has nothing to do with hate either. I try not to shop there for several reasons, and yes, they are political. That is also our right. But so glad to see Season 5 and love Chip and Joanna~~can't wait to try the bread1
