Pineapple Banana Bread

Bananas are a staple in my house. I buy a bunch every time I go to the store and it is the one “on the go” item I can grab as I am walking out the door for breakfast. Needless to say, they never get fully eaten before they start to get brown spots and I hate to waste food.

One of my kids favorite homemade snacks is banana bread. This is normally how I use up my older bananas but this time I decided to take my regular banana bread up a level and make this Pineapple Banana Bread.

The bread turned out super moist and delicious. Pineapple is very sweet and mixed with the nutmeg spice, the bread had almost a tropical taste to it.

My kids enjoy it slightly warmed with a little melted butter on top.

Frugal Tips:

  • This recipe calls for the pineapple to be drained. If your canned pineapple is canned in 100% juice, save the juice to use in another recipe. This pineapple juice can be frozen to preserve it.
  • Bananas can also be frozen for later use. When your bananas are starting to get brown spots, remove the peels and put them in a freezer bag. I freeze bananas three to a bag as that is what most recipes need.
