BEST Banana Bread Recipe
You’ll need 3 large bananas for this recipe. Peel them and place the fruit in a bowl, then smash with a fork.
Add to the mashed bananas all of the wet ingredients: oil, eggs, yogurt or sour cream and vanilla. Mix well.
After mixing your dry ingredients in a larger bowl (flour, salt, baking soda and oats) together, add the wet ingredients.
Wisk until just blended.
It smells amazing! Your family will love you for making this quick bread!
