The stars seem to have aligned to post this. When I wrote about how much I loved my mini loaf pans last week, I got the hankering for some banana bread. We usually eat bananas very quickly around here, but I happened to have 3 overly ripe bananas, so we put them to good use!

I used my good old Betty Crocker Cookbook for this recipe.

After getting the oven preheated and greasing my mini loaf pans, I mixed the sugar and butter.

Mix in eggs, banana, buttermilk, and vanilla. If you haven’t tried real buttermilk I’m telling you, there is a difference! It is so easy to make your own from a start and have it on hand, so try it. You will never look back!

Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt.

Instead of adding nuts like the recipe suggests, we added chocolate chips. We are not really lovers of nuts. Chocolate is a totally different story though. We used about 3/4 of a bag of chocolate chips.

Fill those mini loaf slots and put it in the oven to bake. I have found the perfect baking time to be 25 minutes on the lowest oven rack setting.

When they are done cooking, try not to eat all of them at once! They are the perfect size for yourself, or if you are feeling generous you can split them in half!
