This blog post will show how to make the most common version of banana bread, it takes only 10 minutes to make and tastes delicious! It’s the perfect way to use up all of those ripe bananas before they go bad. The hardest part about making this bread is waiting for it to cool so you can eat it. You’ll be amazed at how many people love banana bread–even if they don’t like bananas!

It’s a moist, sweet loaf of bread that is perfect for breakfast or an after-school snack.

What Type of Flour Can I use?

You can use whatever type of flour you prefer, but we recommend using white whole wheat or oat flour for added fiber. It’s best to make your own mix with these flours because store-bought gluten-free all-purpose blends are often high in sugar content. This will ensure that any extra sweetness comes from the bananas rather than an artificial sweetener which could have adverse effects on blood glucose levels.

Are Over ripped Bananas Compulsory?

We recommend using over ripped banana in your recipe to make sure that the bread is moist and delicious. This ingredient will also bring out natural sweetness, which can help balance any tartness from an orange or lemon you might add for flavor. The result should be a sweet yet tangy breakfast treat perfect with coffee or tea!
