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.

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!

    My mom and I are big fans of Fixer Upper. All the goodies that are shown on the show look scrumptious. Thanks for sharing this super, easy recipe. Can't wait to try it!

    I would love to try it, but, as European (Germany), I really do not know what a cup of the different ingredients means ;) Is it possible to translate it in gramm und Milliliter?
    Thanks a lot!
    Best, Nadine
