grease pans. I always use Baker’s Joy, as I always say, Its God’s gift to baking! I also prefer to use mini loaf pans as well as mini cupcake pans. I prefer small servings as opposed to one big loaf. But that’s just me 🙂 It’s also easier when you are giving them as a gift or taking them to the office

in a bowl, start with 2 cups of all purpose flour

slice up 5-6 bananas in a cup or bowl,

and mash them up, this will give you aprox 2 1/3 – 2 1/2 cups of mashed banana, give or take. the more the merrier in my eyes 🙂 if you have less banana it will still work, but it won’t be as sweet, and it will be slightly less banana-y , but it will still come out as banana bread 😉
