Having a quick breakfast for on the go is essential for my family. Now that my oldest daughter is in kindergarten, we have to leave the house every morning super early, and so she eats breakfast before we go. One of her favorite things to eat for breakfast is banana bread, so I thought I could make up a batch and freeze some in little individual size portions, perfect to grab and go. I believe I got this recipe from my Dad a long time ago, who always use to make this for us.
I also added some ingredient substitutions for vegan diets!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup shortening (Crisco)
- 2 eggs (or 1/2 cup applesauce)
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup milk (dairy-free is ok)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 3/4 cups flour
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray any pan you are using with some non-stick cooking spray. I like to use this one, because it smells and tastes sweet, and it has flour in it. NOTHING sticks when I use this.
In a mixer, combine sugar and shortening until it forms coarse crumbles.
I would recommend filling your pan less than halfway full. This bread rises A LOT!
This banana bread and a hot cup of coffee is the best breakfast!
I hope you like this recipe, let me know if you try it out 🙂
