One-Banana Banana Bread

Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  1. In a medium size mixing bowl, mash the banana. Then stir in the egg, vanilla extract, and oil until combined. Then add all at once the flour, sugars, baking soda, and salt. Fold until combined. Then stir in the chopped walnuts.

  2. Spoon into your prepared (oiled or lined with parchment) baking vessels and bake at 325°F
  3. Regular size muffins or a baked donut pan will yield six and should be baked for 14-15 minutes.
  4. If you use mini loaf pans (like I have in the photos), this will yield three and should be baked for 18-20 minutes.

Recipe Notes

I added a second banana to the top of these mini loafs just for the photos (just trying to give you something pretty to look at it). This is not necessary and in fact I found it caused the batter just under the banana to bake unevenly. So I really don't even recommend it, but if you want the look ... I get it. :)
