Bestest Banana Bread Ever {& easy too!}

This is my go-to recipe for banana bread...which we make often in our house...seems like there is a super short window when the bananas are in acceptable condition for my picky girls to eat...not too green, not brown AT ALL, not the slightest bit banana life that's about 1 hour I think!!!

Anyway....we made a loaf this morning {with chocolate chips!} and I thought I would share the recipe since everyone has brown bananas around from time to time! For those days you don't have the time to make bread, I  freeze the over ripe bananas so we can use them as we need them in smoothies, ice cream, and bread, etc.

Banana Bread

Preheat oven to 325

3 ripe/over ripe bananas (4 if small)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour (1c unbleached all purpose & ½c white wheat)
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

In a large bowl melt butter in microwave then add bananas & mash with fork, stir in other ingredients. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake for 45-60 minutes (or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean). That's it, easy peasy! We throw in some mini chocolate chips sometimes too {like in the picture above} and that's super delish, my girls will even choose it for dessert!
