  • 5 Tbsp Butter
  • 3 Bananas use 4 if smaller
  • 1.5 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbs Honey
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • Prepare a loaf pan by spraying cooking spray or rubbing butter all over the inside of the pan. Then sprinkle a light dusting of flour in the pan.
  • Brown the butter over medium-high heat.
  • While the butter is browning, mash the bananas in a mixing bowl (I use a simple hand masher).
  • Add the sugar to the mashed banana
  • Add egg
  • Add honey
  • Add brown butter and mix
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine and stir most all the dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt).
  • Mix the wet mixture into the dry until there are no traces of dry ingredients.
  • Stir just until there are no traces of dry ingredient, but do not over mix
  • Pour the mixture into your loaf pan
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 45- 55 minutes until a toothpick can be inserted in the middle and come out clean.
  • Turn off the heat and let it rest in the oven for 10 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and let sit in its loaf pan for approximately 15-30 minutes until the pan is able to be handled safely.
  • Place a wire cooling rack over the top of the loaf pan and flip the bread out of the pan.
  • Place a second wire cooling rack on the bread and flip it back over so the bread is right-side up.
  • Allow the bread to cool before cutting.
  • You can add a touch of butter to a slice while its still warm or package and freeze for another day



You can add pecans or other nuts for added flavor and bulk as we did in the video. It is delish with or without it. 
Cooking time will vary by the size and amount of your bananas. .Adjust cooking times depending on the  size and shape of your pan. If using a a square baking pan cook for 45 minutes and let it rest in the oven for 10. 
When using a loaf pan it will require more like 55 minutes to cook with a rest time of 10 more minutes in the oven.
Do not overcook or the bread will be dry
Regardless  of your pan or banana size stick a toothpick in the center and when it comes out clean the bread is ready.
Why this is great for meal prep?
Slices can be frozen and reheated in the toaster oven or in a frying pan with some butter.
