5 Ingredient Banana Bread
It never fails, we have leftover bananas that “ew Mom they have brown spots on them” and the kids will not eat them. I hate to waste anything if at all possible. Ripe bananas can be used in many recipes and banana bread is one of them.
This recipe uses a boxed yellow cake mix. I love any recipe that is easy and quick to make and this is one of them. 5 ingredients in this banana bread if you are using chocolate chips as an added benefit!
This make two 8 inch loaf pans. I have made this without chocolate chips, with the chocolate chips and also with chopped walnuts.
Banana bread is very moist and will go bad quickly. I use one loaf immediately and wrap the second loaf in foil and place in a freezer bag and freeze until we are going to use the bread. My kids like to slice the bread, heat it slightly in the microwave with a little butter. They eat this for a snack and even for breakfast.
