Easy Back to School Banana Breakfast Bread Recipe

We start school in about a week.  (cue sad music)  It’s time to start thinking school supplies, uniforms, freshly sharpened pencils…..and mass morning chaos.  I have to have the kids out the door no later than 7:10 am (cue even sadder music) and so breakfast is always something I need to have ready in a hurry so they can grab it and run.  A great alternative to super-sugary toaster pastries?  Banana Breakfast Bread.  It takes minutes to prepare (an hour to bake so do it the night before), stores easily, and the kids love it.  Let me know if you try it!  Or, if you have any healthy and quick breakfast ideas that your kids love, please share!

My kids like it warmed up in the microwave with a little butter....of course!

Banana Breakfast Bread

3 medium ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Here’s how to make it: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.  In a large  bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.  Then add the other ingredients and mix until blended….don’t overmix!  Pour into pan and bake about an hour or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Enjoy!
