When I say that this recipe is easy, I mean that it is EASY! All you do is dump and mix, and within about an hour or so you have some of the best Spiced Banana Bread that you’ll ever try.
Lately it feels like I buy bananas just to wait for several days to a week to turn them into banana bread. My kids must be sick of bananas…which is ok, I guess because it gave me the opportunity to perfect my Spiced Banana Bread recipe.
I can’t be the only one that finds most banana bread recipes a little lacking in the spice department…don’t get me wrong. I love a good, traditional banana bread as much as the next girl, but I also really like to mix things up a bit sometimes and throw in some spices.
What are the best spices for Banana Bread?
My favorite spices to add are cinnamon and nutmeg, so I thought that I would share with you all today the recipe that I developed for whenever I get the urge for some spicy banana goodness.
I normally would take a bunch of still pics to show you how to make this yummy Banana Bread with spices, but this recipe is so simple that it really wasn’t necessary.
That being said, here are some pics of the final product!
It’s oh so yummy!
Now back to the recipe for my Delicious Spiced Banana Bread!
It’s moist, sweet, and perfectly delicious! It cuts really well too…that is if you are patient enough to let it cool all the way…which my family is a bunch of little piglets, so it never has time to cool all the way before we are helping ourselves to some.
This Banana Bread Recipe Uses Three To Four Bananas, And Makes One Loaf.
You can easily double or triple it to suit your needs though.
- 1&1/2 Cups Flour
- 1 Cup Sugar
- Dash Of Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Flax Meal
- ¾-1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1/16 teaspoon Nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 3-4 Ripe Bananas
- ¼ Cup Salted Butter (melted)
- 1 Egg
- ½ Cup Chopped Walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease a standard loaf pan.
- Add all ingredients to your mixing bowl except the Walnuts. Mix until well combined.
- Then add the Walnuts and mix in.
- Pour into greased loaf pan. Spread evenly.
- Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Let cool for a few minutes before popping it out of the pan.
- Cut and serve. Enjoy!
If you're using large bananas, use 3. If using medium, use 4.
For people that aren't huge fans of spice, I recommend using the smaller amount of cinnamon. Start there and switch it up next time to your desired level of spice.
If you want to switch it to chocolate chip banana bread, just omit the spices and Walnuts and add ½ Cup or so of chocolate chips.
Also, I use flax meal to sneak some omega 3's into my families diet... shhh!
