Easy One Bowl Banana Bread

banana bread loaf spiced toddler approved

No mixer needed for this Banana Bread; it’s easy to make and even easier to eat! I forego the extra 1/4 cup of sugar when I make this loaf but if you’re used to store-bought banana bread you may want to add in the additional white sugar. When I’m craving chocolate, I leave out the spices (other than vanilla) and add 1/3 cup mini milk chocolate chips. Another great add in is 1/3 cup walnuts which I typically incorporate around the holidays.



  • 3 ripe Bananas
  • 1/3 cup Melted Butter
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup White Sugar (only if you prefer a sweeter loaf)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Grease and flour a 9 inch loaf pan
  3. Mash the 3 ripe Bananas well with a fork
  4. Add the melted Butter and whisk well
  5. Add the Egg, Sugar and remaining ingredients (except the flour) and mix well
  6. Slowly add the flour 1/2 cup at a time and continue to mix
  7. Add batter to greased and floured loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center

Enjoy, Happy Baking!
