Ingredient List
For the Banana Bread:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups mashed bananas (about 6 medium brown bananas)
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 ½ cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Assembling the Banana Bread
  • Preheat oven to 350 oF. Spray two 8×4-inch loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth.

  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined, but don’t overmix.

  • Divide batter evenly between prepared pans. Bake 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.

  • Remove pans from the oven and set on a wire cooling rack. Let bread cool in the pans for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the bread and carefully remove from the pans. Let the bread cool on the wire racks until only slightly warm.

  • Cut into slices and serve.
