Homemade Banana Bread Recipe

My aunt makes the best banana bread. Hands down. This is her recipe and this is the one I’ve been using for the past 10 years! The only thing I adjust is the amount of sugar because bananas are naturally sweet. It’s not low calorie, low carb, low anything, but for a sweet treat it does the trick. I use gluten free flour, but the recipe was originally intended for all purpose flour. I’ll even warm up a slice for breakfast and put some yogurt butter on it! Yum!

Banana Bread


  • 1/2 cup butter softened (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 medium sized bananas
  • 2 cups flour (I use gluten free)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix and pour into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes to one hour depending on your oven. I begin checking mine at 40 minutes just to make sure I don’t overcook it. I use a knife to check that the batter is completely cooked. Enjoy!
