One Bowl Banana Bread

No mixer required for this easy one bowl banana bread! We love to add mini semi sweet chocolate chips and serve it up with toasted coconut and vanilla ice cream for decadent dessert!

Author: Kami - NoBiggie.net
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (one stick) melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3-4 bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet mini chocolate chips *optional
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare baking pans with baking spray and parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  3. Mix in the sugar and melted butter.

  4. Whisk in the eggs, mashed banana, sour cream and vanilla.

  5. Mix all ingredients together until combined well.

  6. Pour into prepared baking pans. Bake for 1 hour or until a wooden skewer comes out mostly clean of the wet batter after being inserted into the center of the bread.

  7. Allow to cool in the baking pans for 30+ minutes with a clean hand towel over the top.

  8. Enjoy warm! Keep covered in plastic wrap at room temp.
