Banana Bread with Whipped Honey Butter

Today’s recipe for banana bread is one of my favorites.  It is simple and it never fails me.  I mix it up by adding chocolate chips or berries, at times, and it always turns out great.   Last year, I made this whipped honey butter for the bread and I have been making it often since then.   The kids and I love this snack!    I often put it on my High Protein Peanut Butter Banana Muffins as soon as they come out of the oven.

Banana Bread Ingredients:

  • Peel the bananas.  Mash them with a fork.  I like to leave some chunks of banana for texture.   – leaving some chunky pieces for texture.  
  • Place mashed bananas in a bowl with sugars and whip together with a hand mixer on medium speed until frothy, about 2-3 minutes.  
  • Add melted Land O Lakes® Butter, eggs and vanilla.  Mix together until combined.  
  • Add flour, soda, and salt and mix by hand until just combined.  Do not over mix, this will cause the bread to be tough.

This bread is just delicious.  While I love to eat it fresh out of the oven, it lasts several days if stored correctly.   I usually heat it up for a few seconds in the microwave and then put the button on the warm bread before eating it.

If you want to present the bread as a gift, store the bread in a beautifully wrapped wax paper.
