Before you throw out those yucky looking bananas into the trash, you can make some of the best banana bread you ever had, so you can thank me later! This recipe is quick and easy! This is the go to yummy treat our mom always made for us while growing up. It’s best when it’s fresh and you put some butter on top, it will seriously melt in your mouth because it’s so moist.

I have a bad habit of getting bananas and then forgetting that I bought them. Then just let them sit around until they get all brown and yucky looking. When most people throw them away, ripe bananas are the best kind for banana bread. This recipe is pretty simple – some people add other items like nuts, fillings or whatnot, but we like to keep it nice and simple. The recipe below can be split into two loaf pans, we used 8×5 pans.
