In the Kitchen with Miss J: Banana Bread

Baking Banana Bread

It is still super hot here in Louisiana, but we still have to do some baking every now and then. It’s so much fun to do together and tastes good, so we put up with the extra heat from the oven. One thing that has become a bit of a staple for us this summer is banana bread.

Our family loves bananas, but sometimes we don’t eat them fast enough and they get too ripe. They are then either destined to go into a green smoothie, the freezer, or banana bread. I found this super easy recipe here while searching for something else. I loved the blog and keep reading through posts and then I stumbled upon it.

We keep ours as simple as the recipe is for now because I usually don’t have any other fun things to add in like chocolate chips or walnuts. Miss J loves smashing up the bananas for it the best. I would say it’s an easy enough recipe she might be almost able to put it all together by herself (I of course still do the oven part). For a spread, we usually add some cinnamon to cream cheese.

The bread tends to dry out some after a day or two, but is still great when toasted. I think if I stored it more properly it wouldn’t dry as much though. I can be lazy sometimes ;) Any new easy fun recipes you have tried lately?

    I love a good banana bread. We go in fits and starts with bananas. Sometimes we eat a whole bunch in two day, while other times 3/4 of the bunch starts getting brown before I hurry up and do some baking (or yummy frozen bananas). What’s your green smoothie recipe like?

      For the green smoothies, I always start with a cup and half of spinach and half cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Then I will blend in fruit, usually some frozen strawberries and whatever else we have (peaches, banana, blueberries, mangos, etc)and finish off with a tablespoon of chia seeds. I love that you can’t really taste the spinach and my kids drink them up! Which is good because they aren’t really salad fans :)

    I love the pictures. I used to make banana bread all the time, my husband loved a recipe which included cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Extra sweet! lol
