Kids in the Kitchen ~ Banana Bread

We had three very ripe bananas to use up so Emily and I had to make some yummy Banana Bread. I got the recipe from here, but made a few changes to it and was very happy with the result. We will definitely be making this again!

I put the bananas into a Ziploc bag and let Emily mash up the bananas. She loved this part. When she was finished I cut the corner and squeezed out the mashed bananas.

Emily helped mix it all together.

Our Banana Bread
  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 mashed overripe bananas
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs, applesauce and mashed bananas until well blended.
  3. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Add chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
