[Recipe] Six Ingredient + No Sugar Banana Bread

M, my hubby, quit sugar recently and he had such a sweet tooth.  He says he got it from when I was pregnant because I craved sweets all the time.  Okay, hubby, sure. *smirk*  I have made this banana bread before but it includes sugar and vanilla extract.  I decided to omit both ingredients and add an additional ripe banana to compensate.  I was curious to see how it would turn out.  

This recipe is a little variation of this banana bread recipe I found on Simply Recipes.  My usual 'with sugar' recipe includes 1/2 cup of brown sugar, as opposed to 1 cup of granulated white sugar.  Alas, here is the recipe for my Six Ingredient + No Sugar Banana Bread.  Oh yeah, break out your mixing bowl and a spoon.... no mixers needed! Yeah!

Six Ingredients:
  • Four (4) ripe bananas - I use organic
  • 1/3 cup of melted, unsalted butter
  • One (1) egg - I use cage free
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees,  Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.  In a large mixing bowl, mash four ripe bananas with a fork.  Slowly drizzle and stir in the melted butter (I melted it in the microwave).  Add one egg, the teaspoon of baking soda and a pinch of the kosher salt.  Mix together.  Add the flour and mix thoroughly ensuring all the flour is incorporated into the wet ingredients.  Pour the bread mixture into the loaf pan.  Bake for about 45 minutes.*  Use a toothpick to check to see if it is done (the toothpick will come out clean).  Cool for about 15 minutes.  Carefully remove from the loaf pan and use a serrated (bread) knife to cut into slices.  Store in air tight container.

* - Cooking times in the oven vary.  My oven over-bakes stuff, so I usually shave off 5-10 minutes from a recipe and always check to see if it needs additional time in the oven.   The Simply Recipes recipe says it will take about one hour, and to check at 50 minutes.  

Hello, delicious banana bread!  This recipe is super simple to make.  The natural sweetness from the bananas and knowing that there isn't any added sugar makes it even better.  M loves it so much that he already ate half of it by himself,  I love a slice warm with a little butter.  Try it and let me know what you think.  ENJOY!
