Easy Banana Bread Recipe:

I have a confession to make…. my husband and kids love banana bread, but I don’t.  Since I’m not a huge fan of banana bread it’s not usually on the top of my “to make” list. Every time we have overripe bananas my kids (my daughter especially) beg me to make banana bread. Sometimes I oblige, but seriously there are so many ingredients in my banana bread recipe that I just don’t want to get all of that stuff out.

As a part of my partnership with MIRACLE WHIP, myself and a few other bloggers were given a choice of MIRACLE WHIP recipes to try this month. On that list was “Easy Banana Bread”.  I thought that I’d try to improve my banana bread baking frequency and give it a try.

I checked out the recipe online and found that it only had a few ingredients and I didn’t even need to dirty my mixer (unless I wanted to). Last night I made the recipe and it was quick and easy. After I made it my daughter kept following me around asking “when can we eat the banana bread???” and “did you take pictures yet?”, “can I eat the banana bread now?”

You may be surprised to read that this is a MIRACLE WHIP recipe but the addition of the MIRACLE WHIP eliminates a few ingredients and gives the bread a little extra “something”. I also think that it’s moister than my previous banana bread recipe.

We would definitely make this banana bread again. I think that it would be a wonderful neighbor gift for the upcoming Holiday season, just wrap it up and add a nice bow. It would also make a great appetizer for guests to munch on before Thanksgiving dinner.

  1. If you find your bananas are getting too ripe and you can’t use them right away, simply put them in the freezer. You can even stick them in there peel and all until you can get to them. If it is going to be very long, it is a good idea to peel them and wrap them first.

  3. The banana bread looks great and I’d love to try it. I live in the UK and I don’t think we have Miracle Whip here, would there be a substitute for it do you think?

    1. Hi Melissa
      I live in the U.K., too! What is miracle whip, please? Is it a savoury or sweet sauce?
      Thank you

  4. I’m intrigued- I’ve never tried Miracle Whip in baked goods!
    I have a whole bunch of overripe bananas sitting on my counter this minute- I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but I think I know now!
    Thank you for the recipe!
