  • 3 bananas brown, mashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/2- 1 cup sugar depends on how sweet you want it
  • 1 egg whisked with a fork
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In a bowl, mix all ingredients by hand until well incorporated

  • Bake 50 minutes to 1 hour or until browned and toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean (check at about 50 minutes)

You can add in a cup of chocolate chips. I recommend cutting the sugar down to 1/2 or 3/4 cup if adding chocolate chips in.
