5 Ingredient Banana Bread, pure and simple.

Busy days require easy recipes. And this recipe for 5 Ingredient Banana Bread is just that recipe! Plus it is so easy to stir up, even the kids can make it. 

Cooking and baking are great skills to have and as it turns out, both are a lot of fun...fortunately banana bread is a favorite of so many and even makes a great gift to share with friends and neighbors. So if you are wondering what fun activities to offer your young ones, baking is one to put on the list! And a loaf of 5 Ingredient Banana Bread, is the perfect recipe for any beginning baker in the kitchen, young or old alike!

A recipe this tasty (and simple to make) doesn't require a lot of convincing to make...and my guess is, you probably have a banana or two in the fruit bowl that is so ripe I refer to them as "banana bread worthy"


What exactly is "banana bread worthy"

Bananas that are so ripe and sweet they are practically screaming to be used or placed on hold in the freezer. Bananas that got a bit too ripe for fresh eating, you know the ones with lots of freckles and brown marks! 

Plus they are usually very sweet, easy to mash and you don't need a lot of sugar in the recipe. You can even freeze them! So if you only have one very ripe banana in the fruit bowl, simply toss it into the freezer as is. 

Then the next time you see that you have three bananas in the freezer it is time to bake this banana bread. To use those frozen bananas, let thaw, snip off the end, and let the fruit slide out into a bowl, stir well with a fork and that's it, you have instant mashed bananas.


So what's stopping you? Grab a baking partner and bake up a loaf of this tasty and easy-to-make 5 Ingredient Banana Bread for everyone to enjoy! You will be glad you did...

Ingredients needed for this recipe:

You will also need:
  • silicone spatula, for mixing
  • measuring cup
  • liquid measuring cup
  • medium-sized mixing bowl
  • loaf pan
Now we are ready to begin!




5 Ingredient Banana Bread
by the seat of my pants!
350-degree oven

3 bananas, mashed
2/3 c sugar, you can use part brown sugar, if desired
2 eggs
1/2 c coconut oil, melted* and cooled
2 c Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour, the recipe is found here.

Mash the bananas, stir in sugar, then eggs. 

Add cooled coconut oil, mix well. 

Fold in the self-rising flour.

Turn into a standard loaf pan, bake 45-55 minutes, or until done in your oven.

Let cool in pan 10-15 minutes, turn out onto a cooling rack or cotton toweling. 

Let cool completely. Wrap well, let rest 24 hours before slicing. (if you can wait that long!)

*coconut oil can be messy to work with! The easiest way I have found is to put the amount of coconut oil you need into a glass measuring cup and melt it in the microwave. Pour back any extra, into the coconut oil container. Or if not quite enough add extra and stir until melted.

Storage options for 5 Ingredient Banana Bread. You may store at room temperature for up to two days. Wrap well and store in the refrigerator for longer storage times. As with most quick bread, 5 Ingredient Banana Bread will freeze well.

  3. I've never used coconut oil! It doesn't come already liquified? No cholesterol I presume.
