5 Ingredient Banana Bread

I’m sure you guys have seen a million recipes for banana bread, and that’s not an exaggeration. Almost every foodie I know has created their own recipe from the hundreds of ripe bananas they have on their kitchen counter. So what makes this recipe unique? Well first, I made it from whatever I had left in my fridge. In the midst of packing for my move to NYC, I packed up all my full bags of flours, unopened jars of nut butters, and anything else I could bake with when I move to my new kitchen. Second, it only has 5 ingredients because of the first reason! I seriously just wanted to get rid of whatever I had left and I had no intention of sharing the result. I never expected this banana bread recipe to be one of my bests. The middle is so light and fluffy and the outside is baked to a golden brown perfection. I hope you guys love it as much as I do! Happy baking 🙂
