This quick recipe for Easy 3 Ingredient Banana Bread is delicious! I could not believe how good it was with such simple ingredients. All you need is 3-4 ripe bananas, eggs, and a box of cake mix. Yes, you can make great tasting banana bread with a box of your favorite cake mix. Last week I had some bananas that were getting ripe and I needed to use them up so I decided try this easy recipe.
This Easy 3 Ingredient Banana Bread is moist and delicious. I had everything I needed to make it in my kitchen. I quickly mixed all the ingredients together to create this delicious treat. Simply mash the bananas in a large bowl, then add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Spray 2 small loaf pans or 1 large loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and divide the batter and pour into two loaf pans.
Next I topped one of the loaves with mini chocolate chips. I love chocolate chips on everything, well almost everything so I decided to add them to one loaf. Next, I put them in the oven and baked at for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees. You might need to bake a little longer if using 1 loaf pan.
Best of all you can easily make this gluten free when you use a gluten free cake mix or you can use a sugar free cake mix! Without the additional oil this is actually a lower fat version of traditional banana bread. Some readers thin it has a bit of cake texture but my family thought it was great. I like to keep yellow cake mix on hand and make this when I have surprise company visit. It is also nice to be able to make when I have over ripened bananas on hand. Another great tip is to use a spice cake mix. Our readers tell us that makes an amazing loaf of bread!
I do love this delicious warm banana bread right off the of the cooling rack. If you have extra simply store in an airtight container. It makes great housewarming gifts too!
