When life gives you a boatload of bananas, you make mini banana bread loaves! This recipe only takes 30 minutes to bake and leaves delicious and moist mini quick-bread.
I don’t know how much you cook or bake, but you can guess how much I do by the sheer number of posts that I put up each week. All of this cooking and baking leads to lots of trips to the grocery store.
Lots and lots of trips, especially since most recipes I post here are made at least twice before I share them. Gotta make sure those babies work, ya know?
I originally intended to re-photograph this blueberry banana bread recipe this week. It is one of my very first recipes and while totally and amazingly delicious… the pictures do not do it justice.
I got a cold post airplane/Vegas casino and have been battling it all week so a photo redo seemed perfect. Also, Mr. B was feeling extra helpful and went off to the store for me in search of blueberries. That man! So great!
My bananas were perfectly old and brown and Mr. B brought me a pint or two of blueberries and I went to start baking… only to find that my blueberries had gone all nasty in the center.
Almost as though someone at the store had put all of the gross ones in the middle and covered them up with beautiful ones. We are only as beautiful as we are beautiful on the inside (or something like that) so the blueberries had to be trashed.
I was left with a lot of mashed up bananas so I took this as a sign… banana bread mini loaves to the rescue! Because when life gives you a boat load of bananas, the only thing to do is bake banana bread.
Mini Banana Bread Loaves Recipe
I happened to have 4 mini ceramic dishes lying around that were the perfect size for mini loaves. I think they were a little big and that you can probably separate the batter into 8 loaves. The dishes I had made 7 perfect loaves.
You can also make this bread into one big loaf – bake for 50 minutes instead, checking with a toothpick to make sure it is done!
