Mini Banana Bread Loaves

I splurged on a new kitchen gadget for myself last week...a mini loaf pan.  I just love anything in individual serving size form.  Banana bread was obviously the first thing I planned to make.  I combined my recipe for banana bread and banana muffins to come up with this recipe.  They were moist and delicious, and my family loved them!


3 bananas, smashed
1 banana, diced
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a mini loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large stand mixer bowl, beat together the smashed bananas, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.  Add the melted butter and mix well.  Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix.  Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon into the wet ingredients.  Turn mixer on just to combine. Carefully stir in the remaining diced banana with spoon or spatula.

Pour mini muffin loaves 3/4 of the way full into prepared pan.  You will have a little batter leftover.  I made a jumbo banana muffin also!  Bake for 28-32 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.  Enjoy!

  7. I'm having another Themed Baker's Sunday linky party! The theme this week is bread! I'd love for you to join!

  8. I wanted a Bisquick recipe and used this one as to temp. and how full. Did not work out. Recipe only says 3 large really ripe bananas. The finished product was baked to toothpick doneness but it was too wet inside. Looked very under cooked. I believe there should be a quantity for the bananas. 1 cup maybe? What I call large maybe not be yours.

    I love this recipe!!! I’ve been using it for years now. Although I don’t have a mini loaf pan, I have a 12 count brownie pan that I use so it’s smaller. So I just take a few minutes off the time. Sometimes I add an extra banana to the mix just depends on how many I have that are overripe.


I love that you stopped by and are taking the time to leave a comment! I really enjoy reading them all. Thanks so much!
