Banana Bread

Okay, I don’t have any pictures because we ate this pretty quickly. It was, in my opinion, the best banana bread I’ve made, so I need to capture the recipe. I made this for a friend of mine who loves adding amaretto into baked goods. We didn’t have any at the time, so I used almond extract.


  • 4 over-ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 8 tbsp salted butter room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond extract (or amaretto)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 and butter a loaf pan
  • Cream the brown sugar and the butter together
  • Mash the bananas in. You can also run them through a blender or food processor before adding them
  • Add in the eggs and mix it all together
  • Add in all the dry ingredients (flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon) and mix it up
  • Now add the vanilla, almond extract, and the chocolate chips
  • After everything is mixed together, pour it into your pan and bake it for 45-60 minutes!
