Banana Bonanza Bread

What you need: 

6 ripe bananas
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
cinnamon, to taste

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly coat a loaf pan with nonstick spray. Mash the bananas (better if they're a bit overripe) until not quite smooth (we kinda like it a bit chunky!).
2. Mix in the sugar and vanilla until incorporated. In a separate bowl, sift the dry ingredients together, then add to the banana mixture and stir until blended.
3. Pour into prepared pan, and sprkinle some cinnamon on the top, if desired. Bake for 1 hour.
This recipe is so ridiculously simple but so delicious! It seems to come out perfect every time, in every kind of dish we've tried baking it in! Enjoy with a tall glass of vanilla soy milk! Yum! Healthy eating!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

YUMMY! I'm not sure why the other nana breads seem to be more popular. This one has no oil and is perfectly yummy without even applesauce. Great recipe for those with unstocked cupboards. My daughter loves it! The next frontier: adding blueberries!

Wow! This was really good! Just finished baking and already half the loaf is gone! I used 1c AP flour and 1c whole wheat flour, also added a handful of chopped walnuts. Next time I might add some blueberries just to change it up a bit. Thanks for the recipe! Wonderful!!

I followed all the directions and found this to be a very very very dry recipe.
I felt like I was eating sand.

I am obsessed with this bread! I added a handful of cinnamon and some nutmeg. It was amazing. I love to spread peanut butter on my slice for breakfast. It's amazing!

I'm new to this kind of bread and hardly ever like 'sweet'breads and stuff but this is great! I added dates and walnuts because I only had about 4 not very ripe banana's. Ow and I added a bit of palmsugar. It was delicious!! I'm going to bake some more today and use a muffintin! Great recipe!!! :)

VERY easy.  Took me like 5 minutes to whip up then bake. 
I made half the recipe too, and used muffins instead of a loaf and they are delicious!  Just like banana bread should taste.

This is a good banana bread. I had never made banana bread with more than about 4 'nanas, so this was a bit different. I cut down on the sugar a bit, didn't sift, and used whole wheat pastry flour. I made mine in a silicone loaf pan (standard size), and it baked for a bit less than an hour. The top browned nicely, and I turned it down to 325 for the last few minutes to make sure the inside was mostly done. I left my bananas a bit chunky, so it has some gooey bits in it. I have a favorite standard/traditional-like banana bread, but this is a good/different one. Very easy, too!

This was a great recipe to use up the crapton of bananas my partner dumpstered the other day.  I also added chocolate chips to the batter.  Try it!
