Jessie's Banana Bread

I have tried a MILLION Banana Breads. This one from my Mother in Law is the ultimate. It's quick...easy...and there is just no reason to ever throw out over-ripe bananas.

So here is what you need:

3 mashed ripe bananas
1/4 cup Coconut Oil (the recipe calls for shortening but coconut oil is so much better for you...try it. Oh and melt it...don't put it in the recipe in it's solid won't mix properly.)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Mix the ingredients in the order I've given. Bake for 1 hour in 350 degree oven in a greased bread pan.

Now, make yourself a pot of tea..get your book and enjoy. Your welcome.


  1. off to make this right NOW!

  2. Pam...I have this bread in the oven right now. Would you do a post on Coconut oil and when you use it. I just finished my first jar, but this is the first time I am baking with it...I just dont know how to use it that way.

  3. Hi Pam...I have bananas that need to be dealt with soon. This recipe looks great, but I've never used coconut oil. Do they have it at most stores?

  4. U R Right...this is the best Banana Bread Recipe.....Love...Love...Love it.....I still have to try the coconut oil!

  5. making 2 loaves of this right now ♥ second time using the recipe...sometimes i add a few chocolate chips to my banana bread. soo yummy! :)
