  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9x5” loaf pan, set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix together melted butter, bananas, eggs and vanilla. Stir until combined.
  • Add granulated sugar and brown sugar. Stir until combined and the mixture is smooth.
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon and stir until the mixture is smooth and uniform throughout.
  • Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center of the bread comes out with just some moist crumbs.
  • Cool in the baking pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  • Use a butter knife to release the sides of the bread from the pan if necessary.
  • Turn the bread out onto a cooling rack and let cool completely.



*I have used ¼ cup melted butter and ¼ cup canola oil with great results!
