artsy-fartsy mama: Easy Banana Bread

Easy Banana Bread


Easy 3 Ingredient Banana Bread at artsyfartsymama.com #easyrecipe #banana #bread

I wish I had the patience and talent to make my Grandma's banana bread. I really do. However, that's not likely to happen anytime soon, so this is a great shortcut recipe with a similar result! I can't tell you how many bananas I have thrown away in my life because I was too lazy to make "real" banana bread. Now I can just throw these 3-4 ingredients together!

Easy 3 Ingredient Banana Bread at artsyfartsymama.com #easyrecipe #banana #bread

Ingredients:
Yellow Cake Mix
2 Eggs
3-4 Overripe Bananas
1/2-1 cup chocolate chips, nuts, etc. (optional)

  1. Smash bananas in a large bowl (I just mixed them in my KitchenAid)
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Batter will fill 2 small loaf pans, or one large loaf pan. Make sure to spray pans well with nonstick cooking spray and a little bit of flour.
  3. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes (bake longer if using larger loaf pan)

Easy 3 Ingredient Banana Bread at artsyfartsymama.com #easyrecipe #banana #bread

Tips:
  • Freeze overripe bananas. Put them in a Ziploc bag (peel and all) and thaw when you're ready to use! They stay good for up to 3 months.
  • Don't have a loaf pan? No problem! You can also make this recipe in a muffin tin, cake pan, or a bundt pan. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

just made tonight (after my husband pulled "sausages" out of the freezer for dinner and they were really bananas...). I added about 1/2 c of oil as on the directions... used different brand of cake mix. Made in muffin tin and cooked for 20-25 minutes. Turned out great! Thanks for the idea... and, no, I'm not promoting my own blog - don't even have one!

THarperW said...

Love this "shortcut" to homemade treats! One tip, take a bit of the cake mix to flour the pan instead of white flour for a prettier result. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!!

connie k. said...

Love this! I do the same thing when I need something quick, except I had not thought of adding chocolate chips. (Although I am known to swirl in some Nutella.) My friends (the ones who say they can't bake) love this idea, and they've all got their kids and husbands fooled thinking that they are baking geniuses. So easy and reliable!

Nadia04 said...

do you still follow the ingredients from the back of the box of the cake?

Anonymous said...

I was also wondering if you follow the ing. on the back of the cake box?

Lindsay @Artsy-Fartsy Mama said...

No, you just use the ingredients listed above. Using the bananas replaces the oil, so it also makes the cake/bread less fat! :)

Lindsay @Artsy-Fartsy Mama said...

No, you just use the ingredients listed above. The bananas replace the oil on the box recipe.

This was so easy and delicious! My family loved it!!! Found it on Pinterest and just had to try when I saw the recipe was from your blog. I linked up to you today in this post: http://tipsfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2012/01/pinterest-kitchen-week-7.html

Anonymous said...

I'll admit, I'm a bit nervous about this. I just put it in the oven, and I'm sort of expecting it not to come out right. I only had the 'butter recipe' yellow cake mix, and when I mixed it up with the bananas it was dry and wouldn't bind. So I slowly started adding water, even though you let a few ladies know NOT to add the add'l ingredients on the back of the box. It REALLY seems like it needed the eggs though.. guess we'll see in 1/2 hr!! I also set aside a few muffin cups for my daughter then added pecans to the rest and put it in a loaf pan for us.

Staceybug said...

I just popped mine in the oven! I used a larger loaf pan, since that's all I had, and am baking it for 50 minutes.... not sure if that will be long enough. We shall see. It smells amazing!

Anonymous said...

Mine is in the oven as we speak! I used about a half cup of choco chips and a half cup of peanut butter chips... So this is like an Elvis banana bread :)

Patsy said...

I made this for our brunch this morning, and it is delicious. I wasn't sure about it working with just the mix, bananas, eggs and nuts, but it turned out great! My guys loved it. Patsy

How did they turn out in the muffin pan and how long did you bake them??

Jess said...

So I did them and muffins! Yumm Yumm I just followed the directions for cooking time on the box and baked them for 19 mins they turned out perfect :) make sure you watch them in the end because I had to different types of muffin tins and one cooked faster than the other.

This is an incredibly delicious recipe. Thank you! I even froze the second loaf and it defrosted beautifully!

Jamie Leigh said...

Making it for the second time! This time adding walnuts and using mini chocolate chips. It's way too easy to make! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

Lisa said...

just wondering about using applesauce along with the bananas? i only have 2 overripe bananas and thought about adding some applesauce to make up the difference.

Andi said...

Found you through Pinterest and I'm glad I did! I've got mine in the oven right now, though I put them in muffin (and mini) tins for the little hands in our house. I hope it turns out as good as I think it will! Thanks!

DebiK said...

Can't wait to try this, as I'm a failure at homemade banana bread. I have to buy banana bread mix for the holidays:( Going to the store today so will be picking up bananas. Oh and a hint on freezing those overripe bananas...I take the banana and kind of squish it into a pint size zip lock bag, let all the air out, zip it, and smash the banana. Then mush it all around till it lies flat like a pancake, and freeze it. Makes thawing fast! and your banana is already mashed!

I plan on making some to give as an end of year gift to certain staff at my son's school. I made a test loaf yesterday... so so so so delicious. Tastes like the real thing. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Look above at the directions again. You're supp to add the 2 eggs.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone tried to use a chocolate cake mix instead of the yellow cake mix? I love chocolate zucchini bread and I wonder if it would be just as good as chocolate banana bread?

Anonymous said...

I made it with a spice cake mix (not chocolate I know) but it worked out well. I just love the deeper flavor as compared to yellow cake mix. I can't see why you couldn't use chocolate. One thing is that with the spice mix I use a little more banana (more bananas or the ones that are really big because I want the banana to still come thru). I wonder if you want the banana flavor if you would want to use a little extra as well.

Would this freeze well with the chips? Has anyone tried it?

I love to dust my pans with a little sugar. Adds a little something to the "crust."

Kayla R said...

I love this! My dad is a diabetic so I changed up the ingredients a tad and used sugar-free yellow cake mix and sugar free chocolate chips and used a muffin pan also. I let my dad try it and he told me he loved it... THEN I told him it was sugar-free. =) The entire family loves it too. Thank you!
I wonder if there could be an apple variation?...

Pauline Lucas said...

I didn't have yellow cake mix I had holiday confetti, added some vanilla and cinnamon and it was AMAZING! I also cooked mine in a bundt pan and it was done in 40 mins :)

Kaci said...

These are unbelieveable! I make a big batch and freeze them. They freeze very, very well. They thaw out in about an hour and taste super fresh. Thanks for sharing. I will be trying strawberry cake mix next. :)

Have mine in the oven now! I'm not sure what size loaf pans everyone has been using but with mine I made 4 loafs. I did add a little cinnamon to mine and I used french vanilla mix.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We always have brown bananas and I usually throw them away because banana bread is such a pain. This has made use of those suckers and my family thinks I'm awesome!!!! :)

I just made this recipe, but put the batter into a muffin pan. They came out wonderful!
Thanks for sharing this as we always end up with a few brown bananas!

Will try this with gluten free cake mix for my grandson who has celiac. Thank you

Anonymous said...

I just got done making this bread!!! I used one egg instead of two, along with adding mini choc chips and crushed walnuts. I fed it to my boyfriend who rated it a 9.2 out of 10!!! ( I make him rate everything so I understand how much he likes something)... It's rare that he likes something soo much and was super excited about it!! I made them in muffin pan since that is all I had.

I made this last night using the Betty Cocker Gluten free cake mix....came out perfect! Very delicious! Used 3 bananas and baked it in a 8x8. Sooo good!

Made this right now as jumbo muffins and my kids loved them

Made this recipe last night as muffins - used the 3 bananas and baked at 350 but only took about 16 minutes. They turned out FABULOUS!! Thank you SOOO much for this wonderful way to make quick & easy banana bread!!

Should I let it cool in the bread pan or try to take it out to cool? Sorry pretty new to the kitchen.

Mine are in the oven. Super easy now lets hope I didnt mess them up!

Can I omit the chocolate chips from the recipe?

Lynnette said...

Nevermind on the question about omitting the chocolate chips. I didnt have any so was thinking about making it without them. But looking in my cupboard I forgot I had some Ghirardelli white chocolate chips. I used 3/4 cup. OMG,it was delicious! It's worth a try ladies.

Lynnette said...

Let it cool in the pan.If you sprayed the pan with non stick cooking spray, it should come out easily when cooled.

Lynnette said...

Oh yeah, I forgot to say...I used 4 bananas. It was very moist.

Robyn Rasmussen said...

Just stopping by to let you know that I LOVE this recipe and have used it time and time again. I've loved it so much I shared another blog post on it with links to this page. :) But in muffin form is my favorite!

Rosemary said...

Wow! Delicious and oh so easy!! I made it just as the recipe said, I will definitely be making this agai!!Thanks so much for sharing.

Lesley said...

great tip on freezing the bananas. It would be so neater to be able to stack all those ziplocs in the freezer than having all the frozen loose bananas taking up space in the bottom of my freezer. I think it would even stop my husband from going on a 'if you don't use up all these bananas, I'm just going to toss them into the compost pile' rant!!!

Jessica said...

I just had to comment one more time! Since my first time making these in late July my hubby is constantly buying bananas for me to make this! We have put all different kinds of fruit in them such as blueberries, strawberries and rasberries! We love adding chocolate chip in one batch and leaving them out in the other. It is so easy to make and a hit in my house. Thank you again so much!

Making this right now and it smells yummy!

Ellie said...

I made this with gluten free cake mix (better crocker brand). I added vanilla, because the box said to for the cake. I was glad I did. Other than that, it turned out pretty well for a gluten free recipe!

Sandy said...

I made this recipe last night. I baked it as muffins. I can't believe how easy it was! And they turned out really good. Better than I thought! Three people asked me for the recipe! This will always be my "go to" dessert. It's so fast and easy. Thanks for sharing it :)

Nope, just follow the recipe in the post.

Lindsay @Artsy-Fartsy Mama said...

You sure can! You can also add in walnuts, raisins, or anything else you usually like in banana bread.

Lindsay @Artsy-Fartsy Mama said...

You can use 1/2 cup applesauce (1/4 cup for each egg).

Suzette Hamilton said...

Anyone ever try it with chocolate cake mix?? Might be awesome!!

Do you mix the cake mix according to the package first?

Love your recipe! I added 2 Tbsp. of ground flax seeds for a nutritional boost, used 1/2 c chopped pecans, and 1/2 c semisweet chocolate chips, and cooked in muffin tins - It made 18 perfectly sized muffins. So delicious, and satisfying... The kids wanted a second but were full after just 2! (That doesn't happen often in my house, as the sweet-tooth runs in our family!) Thanks for sharing!

Nope. Just put the bananas and eggs in. Amazingly simple!

This bread is so good. I added Hersey cinnamon chips to it instead of choc chip. I also made one large loaf so it took a lot longer to bake than the directions say. I think I will make it this way from now on.

I had to try this as soon as I saw it on my friend's Pinterest.
It came out so moist and just delicious, but all the chocolate chips sank to the bottom of the loaf pan I used. Maybe it's because I used only 2 bananas ( I had only 2.)and the batter wasn't thik enough to hold the chocolate chips in place ?

I'm trying this right now! Just got everything mixed in. Only thing I did differently was use Moist Deluxe Spice Cake, sliced almonds, and Hershey's premier white chips....it's gotta be good too!

I usually make my banana muffins from scratch for my kids. But, these are so great and so fast. Thanks so much for the suggestions. I also add a little bit of vanilla and coconut extract. Plus I place a dollop of nutella on top of the uncooked muffins and swirl it in before baking. My kids Love!

Anonymous said...

I have read all the comments and noone said they had a problem with theirs being to crumbly. I followed directions exactly, it came out of pan perfectly, however (ever after cooling a bit) I could not slice it, it would just crumble terribly, it tasted wonderful but cant get slices out of it. Maybe oil would have prevented this?

I baked this tonight and ended up having to leave it in for 1 hour. The middle just wouldn't cook through. I covered if with foil about 40 mins in to not burn the top. It was delicious though and tasted like homemade bread!

Hi I found you on pinterest and just wanted to say this recipe is the best, especially for someone that dont have time to bake all day. I made this last week and it was a total hit with everyone! I used 4 bananas, 2 eggs, and just walnuts (no chocolate chips). I was a little nervous about the cake mix because I was thinking it would taste too sweet, but it was amazing!!! This bread turned out perfect (that coming from someone who is not very talented in baking either) so simple and delicious. Next time I think I might add a little nutmeg though just to give it a little extra flavor.

I tried this last night, following the recipe, only I used the Betty Crocker GLUTEN FREE yellow cake mix and it turned out wonderful! I added 1/2 cup of applesauce as GF things tend to be incredibly dry. I made some of it into muffins (in paper) and some into mini loaves. Some of the muffins stuck to the paper but, I think they just needed to cook a little longer. The mini loaves came out perfectly. I will definitely be making this again! Thank you!! :)

LOL, I love that "sausages" comment, that is great. I was just reading to find out if someone else tried this recipe and what they thought. I too have had some of those same "sausages" in my freezer.

frank fain said...

instead of using flour spray the baking pans and sprinkle cinnamon-sugar before putting the batter in. the breads fall out of the pans and it adds a little more flavor to them.

You should peal the bananas before you throw then in the freezer bag. That way when you thaw them to use just squeeze the bag to mash them.

I read this recipe and thought, "WOW, I want peanut butter too!" Good to know I'm not the only one ;)

Just made this today with a few changes...used 1/2 C chocolate chips, 1/2 C peanut butter chips. Swirled in 1 T. creamy peanut butter after mixing all the ingredients and added a sprinkle of both types of chips to the top before baking. Delicious!

Love this recipe! I've made this several times now, but with sugar-free cake mix. I use chopped walnuts, and I even found sugar-free chocolate chips!!! My batter winds up a little dry, so I add one of my kids' applesauce cups (sugar free) to the batter. I cook in Bundt cake pan, and once cooled, put drizzle on top (Splenda mixed with canola oil and a dash of skim milk). Dee-lish!

Thank you for this idea! It is EXTREMELY easy to whip up and delicious. How did you think of it? :)

This is the only way I make banana bread now. So easy and I always have the supplies on hand. It has become one of the most requested dessert recipes among family and anyone who tastes it. :)

I made this tonight and it was amazing! I added ~1/2cup chocolate chips and 1/2cup of peanuts. I used a large loaf pan and it was done in about 55-60 minutes. Just ate a slice with a big glass of milk :) Def making again.

Do you think this could be made with chocolate cake mix?

Ive made this with the yellow cake mix, the chocolate cake mix and right now in the oven I made it with BANANA cake mix! I can't wait to see how it tastes since the last two times i've made it it has been so good!!!! I can only imagine it tastes better with banana cake mix!

I made this on Saturday and it was delicious. I used 3 bananas and 2 large very ripe pears. I did wish I had put in some nuts but I did like it very much just using the basic recipe.

Made this with 1 can pure pumpkin instead of bananas and added pumpkin pie spice. Turned out great!

I just took this out of the oven. I used liquid egg whites instead of whole eggs and instead of chocolate chips, I chopped a bar of Lindt 90% Supreme Dark Chocolate. It smells amazing and based on the taste of the batter, it's going to be a big hit :) Thank you!

This is my new favorite recipe! And it makes it much easier to bake when a 3 year old is "helping".

I made this yesterday and it didn't even last an hour in my house! It was a hit! Thank you so much for this super easy fantastic recipe for a non-baker like me (^_^)

Made this exactly per the directions. My 6 year-old granddaughter happily did most of the work. The results were fantastic, far beyond my highest expectations. Easily our most successful baking project. Terrific results, both in taste and visually. So glad I came across this recipe! Wish I could post the photo we took of our bread (I don't know how to do that)!

Of all the Banana recipes I have ever made, my boyfriend (who did not know I used a cheat cake mix recipe this time) Loved it and said it was the best banana bread and muffins I ever made and to stick to this recipe! Then I told him the secret! I'm always trying new recipes to find one my son who has Autism will try, This is the one! I made him mini muffins, (he likes everything mini and bite sized) and he loved them! So this is now our Banana recipe, I've made it a few times now, and I'm making it again today! Thanks so much!

So what is a "small" loaf pan compared to a mini loaf pan? :)
