For the price of one piece of Starbucks delicious banana bread, we could bake an entire bread ourselves. PLUS, your house will smell AMAZING!

You'll find this recipe simple enough to whip together quickly. Besides, most of the ingredients are staples already in your food pantry, minus a few ripen bananas.

Did you know that - it only takes three bananas for the yummiest bread, which freezes wonderfully, by the way!

A few years ago, I read the book  Onward: How Starbucks Fought For Its Life Without Losing Its Soul; it was an interesting read about how Starbucks founder’s goal was to build a community around the coffee industry. And I couldn’t agree with his mission more.

Since this recipe is a staple in our household, I decided to create it's own food gift label in our shop.

My Starbucks Copycat Recipes will help you satisfy your Starbucks craving; however, my goal is to encourage you to bless someone with one of your homemade creations. 

Sharing homecooked meals or surprising your friends with a few baked items from your kitchen is a wonderful way to extend hospitality. It does not need to be expensive, fancy, or well-planned out.  

As human beings, we all want to feel loved and thought of. 

Your simple gesture of kindness will yield some pretty big results – I promise!

  • 1 cup Ripe bananas (about 3)
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted & cooled
  • 1 1/2 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Soda
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x5 inch loaf.
Blend together bananas and sugar. Next, add 1 egg and slowly pour in the cooled butter.
Sift dry ingredients together and add to banana mixture and stir in walnuts. Blend.
Pour into loaf pan and bake in the oven. Begin checking the banana bread after 45 minutes. Loaves are done when your inserted knife comes out clean.
  • We feel this recipe tastes best when a full cup of sugar is added. I do reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup at times if the bananas are very ripe and it does not affect the texture of the bread.

    Has anyone ever made this recipe substituting the sugar with Swerve or Monk fruit sugar?

      I have not but will let you know if I try it.

      The consistency of the batter and baking time will have to be adjusted. So it may take a few tries to get right.
