This >You can enjoy this bread plain, with chopped walnuts, or even chocolate chips . Perfect for breakfast or dessert!

Do you ever end up with a bunch of overripe bananas sitting on your counter at the end of the week? Just me?

Truth be told, I love bananas but we usually buy too many at the store and then end up with a bunch left over. My favorite way to use up all of those overripe bananas? This homemade banana bread recipe!

Not only is this bread perfectly sweet, but it stays moist for days. No dry banana bread anywhere in sight. You can enjoy this bread plain or mix in some chopped walnuts or even chocolate chips. You make it, this is one recipe that you’ll want to keep on hand, however!

To make this banana bread you’ll start with some all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt. When it comes to the flour, make sure to spoon and level it into your measuring cup instead of scooping it out of the container. If you scoop your flour out of the container, you can end up with way too much flour in your recipe and a super dense loaf of banana bread.

For the wet ingredients, you’ll cream together some butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until it’s light in color and fluffy. Then, you’ll mix in some eggs and vanilla extract.

You’ll also be using two cups of mashed banana in this recipe. It’s what keeps this banana bread super moist, even though it may seem like a lot of banana. Always remember that the riper the bananas, the better when it comes to banana bread!

As I mentioned earlier, you can enjoy this banana bread plain or stir in some of your favorite mix-ins. I love adding either chopped walnuts or even mini chocolate chips to this bread!
