Banana bread?

My husband was going to make banana bread but he forgot yesterday and I thought I would do it for him. But I don't have a recipe. I also only have 3 over ripe bananas (plus a bunch of fresh ones). So does anyone have a good recipe that is quick and easy? Or at least easy!

  • Best Banana Bread Ever
    1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
    3/4 cup light brown sugar or raw sugar or succanat
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. salt
    2 medium bananas, mashed
    1/3 cup unsweetened crunchy peanut butter
    1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt (Greek-style is best)
    1 large egg
    2 Tbs. canola oil
    3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    Preheat oven to 350F. Coat standard loaf pan with cooking spray. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl.
    Whisk together mashed bananas, peanut butter, yogurt, egg and oil. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan.
    Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Cool on rack 15 minutes before unmolding. Cool completely, then slice and serve.

  • What I usually do is to use a banana bread mix and mix in a couple mashed bananas then follow package directions.
