Buttermilk Banana Bread



How can you go wrong with banana bread? It's a total classic. Make it into a loaf and serve it sliced or pour the batter into muffin tins and you have breakfast for the week. If you are left with a lot of bananas turning extra brown, you can bake up the loaves/muffins and freeze them. Anybody can do it! Though, this recipe is a bit different than the rest. The buttermilk and applesauce make the bread super moist, just the way I like it! The chocolate chips are optional, but put them in anyway. You're welcome. :)


Buttermilk Banana Bread

2-3 medium bananas, mashed
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup chunky applesauce
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 - 3/4 cup chocolate chips


In a medium bowl, mix together bananas, buttermilk, applesauce, and eggs. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Add in the banana mixture and stir until well combined. Add chocolate chips and mix well. Pour into greased loaf pan (or muffin tin) and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes. 



Get ready for your house to smell amazing!

  1. I love this idea! We use applesauce and honey in ours, but the buttermilk likely brings a rich flavor too! Yum.

  2. I haven't made banana bread in years. Buttermilk is so good in baked goods so I imagine this tastes crazy good.
