The Best Banana Bread you will EVER eat!

The Best Banana Bread you will EVER eat!

Do you have family traditions at the Holidays? Most families do. Whether it is a certain food, a specific place you go to see Christmas lights, or even decorating for the holidays the day after Thanksgiving. My family tradition is banana bread. And let me tell you…my mom’s banana bread is the most amazing banana bread you will EVER eat! I have looked forward to this every year at Christmas for as long as I can remember.

Boy, did you pick the best day to come read my blog! Today, with my mom’s permission, I am sharing her banana bread recipe! She makes tons of other breads but her banana bread is what everyone looks forward to at this time of year. Her bread is so good that once you try it, you will be spoiled and will never want another bite of banana bread again, unless it is her recipe.

My family used to own a catering truck business and my mom would always make tons and tons of mini loafs of this bread and it would sell out at her first stop. Now, she makes it only at Christmas and it is everyone’s favorite gift. If you don’t try this recipe you are missing out.

Below I have the recipe to your next holiday tradition, and the last banana bread recipe you will EVER need:

  1. Oh my gosh! This looks just like my grandmas banana bread recipe, and it seriously is the best! Making it in mini loaf style is my favorite! I don’t know if you have ever tried using it for French toast but it is seriously out of this world. On rare occasion I make a Bananas Foster French Toast with this banana bread. It’s one of my husbands favorites.

  2. This looks so good! I think I will need to add bananas to my grocery list so I make some banana bread!!! I never made it before but I think I will give it a go.

    1. It’s super easy! Just make sure your banana’s are spotty and like I said, the browner the better! This helps make your bread moist!

  3. It’s funny because I hate to eat banana just like a fruit, but as a bread or cake, I really love it!!! Thanks for the recipe 🙂 Is always good to have some potassium in my organism!

  4. The toddler and I LOVE banana bread, and I often make it as muffins just for on-the-go ease. I haven’t made any in awhile, perhaps I’ll try this one. I add applesauce in mine instead of egg, she’s super allergic. You have a super easy recipe, love it!
