Two-Minute Banana Bread

Yields1 Serving

 3 very ripe bananas
 1/2-3/4 cup sugar
 2-4 Tbsp. canola, olive or flax oil
 2 large eggs
 a big splash of vanilla
 1 1/2 cups flour (I usually use half all-purpose, half whole wheat, oat or quinoa flour)
 1 tsp. baking soda
 1/4 tsp. salt
 a handful of chopped walnuts, chocolate chips, raisins, coconut, fresh or frozen blueberries (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350°F.


In a large bowl, mash the bananas, sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla with a potato masher - don't worry about getting all the lumps out. It will look sort of cottage-cheesy.


Add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir until almost combined; add any additions and stir just until blended.


Spread into a buttered 8”x4” loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes, until golden and cracked on top and springy to the touch.
