Yummy Banana bread

Standard

Before I provide you with the best banana bread recipe, here are a few reasons to love bananas.

Did you know that bananas are an excellent source of potassium?  They may help reduce your risk of high blood pressure and stroke.  Futhermore bananas can help protect against kidney disease, they are able to help our bodies boost its defenses against stomach acid, reducing our risk of ulcers.  Bananas  provide roughly one-third of your daily Vitamin B6 needs, a nutrient found to help calm our nerves.

Rather than tossing my aging bananas, I toss them into the freezer to make banana breads or banana muffins.  Here is the best recipe for banana bread.  Enjoy!

You will need:

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar (I use honey)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour (I use spelt flower)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup sour cream
2-3 medium bananas, mashed (I use 3 bananas)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×5 loaf pan.

In a large bowl, stir melted butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into batter until smooth. Fold in sour cream and bananas.

Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
