Simple One Ripe Banana Delicious Banana Bread

Have you ever had just one ripe banana and was not sure what to do with it? That is what happened to me. In other words, baking needed to happen. Therefore the following recipe is inspired by Amy from A Farmish Kind Of Life (fun fact: She lives in Minnesota also)

I decided to hop on Pinterest, and I came across Rootsy, who shared a recipe from A Farmish Kind Of Life. Amy (from A Farmish Kind Of Life) shares a simple banana bread recipe using only ONE banana. The recipe is so delicious and straightforward. I decided to add two additional items that were not in the recipe. I added chocolate chips and cinnamon, and I HIGHLY suggest it.

This delicious banana bread is so goldenly brown. Once the loaf is cooled, you can wrap it up in tin foil and leave on the counter. As a result, it stays fresh and moist. Check out the video below to see how simple this banana bread recipe is.

After watching that short video, don’t you agree that it is SIMPLE? I love how you just dump all the ingredients in one bowl and mix. It could not be any more simple than that. I know most want simple recipes as we are living busy lives. Hopefully, this simple recipe allows you not to waste that one banana you have left.

John 6:35 
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.
