Too many ripe bananas? I’ve already shown you an idea what to make out of it, remember? Click here for the Nicecream recipe. If I don’t have the munchies for ice cream, the bananas go into a pie dough and become a juicy sweet banana bread. Such a slice of warm banana bread with a scope of nicecream also tastes wonderful!
The dough for the banana bread is not only quickly stirred together, it can also be refined with various ingredients. My favorite variations are both blueberries and Oreos or just dark chocolate chunks. Here you can vary according to your taste. Raspberries, cherries, white chocolate, plums, cocoa, nuts or a combination of them? I have already tried a lot and everything tasted great so far.
For berries, you should use about one or two hands full. If you want to bake a chocolate banana bread, add about 30-40 g baking cocoa. For the chocolate chip variant, 100 g roughly chopped chocolate is enough.
You can garnish such a freshly baked banana bread with other goodies really easy. Melted chocolate, a creamy frosting or a few fresh berries are all excellent choices! Again, you can let your imagination run wild. For example, I recently made a chocolate banana bread with peanut butter frosting and pretzels:
The frosting consists of equal parts butter, peanutbutter and powdered sugar. Simply frothed.
So, how would you like to garnish your banana bread? Leave a comment and maybe I’ll try your variant next time.

- 3 bananas (ripe)
- 150 ml almond milk
- 50 g rapeseed oil
- 60 g sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla sugar
- 1-2 tsp cider vinegar
- 300 g flour
- 1-2 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- Preheat your oven to 175 °C circulating air (195 °C top and bottom heat). Lightly grease a loaf pan (25 cm).
- Peel the bananas and mash them with a fork.
- Add almond milk, rapeseed oil, sugar, vanilla sugar, cider vinegar and stir well.
- Then add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well until everything starts blending together. Do not stir too long, otherwise the banana bread will not raise properly!
- Optional: gently fold in your chosen ingredients (bueberries, chocolate chips etc.)
- Pour the dough into the loaf pan and bake for about 40 minutes. Do a cake test with a toothpick to be sure the banana bread is done.
- If you don't want to use oil, you can exchange it for (vegetable) yoghurt. But then the banana bread gets a little less fluffy.
