No Mixer Banana Bread Recipe

I just love banana bread, don’t you? There’s something about the warmth of the bread paired up with the sweetness of bananas that makes me happy with each and every bite.

Why you should Make this Banana Bread Recipe

The best part about this no mixer banana bread? I just told you. No mixer needed! All you need is a bowl, a fork, and a baking pan!

It’s crazy simple and super delicious and just typing this out makes me want a slice.

Now, I know what you’re thinking…there’s no possible way that this easy banana bread recipe tastes any better than the hundreds of other recipes out there. Wrong. Just wrong.

This super moist and yummy banana bread recipe is stellar for a couple of reasons.

First, it has 4 bananas in it!

And if you’re like me, this recipe is a savior because now I know I have a recipe that I can use for all those leftover bananas. You know the ones, they’ve just been sitting on the counter, slowly turning browner and browner and none of the kids will eat them. 

Usually, at this point, I just peel the bananas and toss them in the freezer for smoothies, But when I get at least 4 super-ripe bananas, I know it’s time to make banana bread!

Another great thing about this recipe is it is a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen.  Because mashing bananas can be so much fun!

Do you have one of these potato mashing tools?  They are the best thing ever! 

This particular one is from pampered chef, but here is another version on Amazon that looks like it does the same thing and more.

Here are answers to a few of the questions I have gotten over the years about this Banana Bread Recipe:

How can you brown bananas quickly?

Wanting to make banana bread but the bananas aren’t quite ripe enough? Help brown them with these simple tips! Add your bunch of bananas to a brown paper bag and have the top loosely closed. This will help speed up the ripening of your bananas so that they are ready for this easy banana bread recipe.

Why is my Banana Bread Raw in the middle?

Banana Bread is made with a very wet dough.  This particular recipe is very moist due to the number of bananas in the mix.  An average size loaf pan should take about an hour to cook.

The cook time will vary a bit based on your oven and the size and type of pan used.  The way to verify that your banana bread is done, you can insert a toothpick or other type of cake tester in the center.  If it comes out clean, it’s done.  If there is batter attached to the toothpick, the Banana Bread needs more time.

I have made this recipe in a variety of pans, but have had the most success using a wider, shallower dish. (Like a 7 by 11 glass pyrex baking dish.)

What can you add to your banana bread recipe?

If you like nuts or chocolate chips, those are always great additions. Shredded coconut can be a fun one, too! Anything that your taste buds crave, it’s worth a try to add!
