Cooking with Kids ~ Banana Bread

We had some Banana’s that were really ripe so that meant BANANA BREAD!!

Then squeezing it out into the bowl, I snip the bottom corner so they can easily squish it all out.


Dumping in chocolate chips makes them very happy too :)

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.
