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
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!
