Simple Banana Bread Recipe

This banana bread is dangerous I have to warn you. It’s got marshmallow bits throughout the batter with chocolate and graham cracker stuffed right in the middle. It’s sweet and irresistible. It’s whipped up in one bowl too, so you won’t be making a mess of the whole kitchen. Woohoo! Enjoy friends!

How To Make Best Ever Banana Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a 9x3x5 inch loaf pan generously with non stick cooking spray.
  2. Place butter into a large mixing bowl and stir in sugar until well combined. Add egg, bananas and sour cream mixing until well combined. Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and marshmallow bits until combined. Pour half of the batter into prepared loaf pan. Layer with graham crackers then Hershey Bars. Top with remaining banana bread batter spreading evenly then bake for 50-55 minutes or until baked through. Let cool for 30 minutes then remove from pan and let cool completely.

Tips For The Best Banana Bread

  1. Bananas that you use for your banana bread should be overly ripe, lots of black on peel.
  2. To store ripe bananas: freeze with or without the peel. Return to room temperature before baking.
  3. Use oil over butter. Oil emulsifies and coats the flour, preventing it from absorbing too much water which results in dry banana bread.
  4. Carefully fold dry and wet ingredients together for a tender crumb.

You should actually add your sour cream after the bananas, but I remembered it at the end, lol! It all still bakes fine 🙂

    YUMMY! This sounds delish! Love all your recipes, they are always a hit!

    How do you think it would turn out if I chopped up the chocolate into small chunks, broke up the crackers into smaller pieces, and mixed it into the batter with the marshmallows? I want to make this, but not sure if I want a surprise in the middle or all mixed throughout!

    Thanks again for all your wonderful recipes!
