Red Velvet Banana Bread is so easy to make. It is so moist and flavorful and addicting.
I am alllll about easy recipes. I have 4 kids. I don’t have time for fancy shmancy recipes that take all the time to make. One kid needs help with this and the other kid needs help with that. This kid can’t reach this and that one can’t find that. There’s only 5 ingredients in this Red Velvet Banana Bread. That’s a mom approved recipe for sure. It turns out so soft, moist and cake-like. And the chocolate red velvet flavor goes perfectly with the bananas. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, this is a great treat to make for your loved ones. You could make mini loaves and give them to your kids’ teachers or friends.
You can also add in chocolate chips or drizzle a yummy white glaze on top. I love it just the way it is. And a trick to cutting it, or any quick bread: sometimes it gets a crust on top that’s hard to cut through without breaking the slices into pieces. Just place the cooled loaf into a gallon sized ziploc bag or wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit a couple hours or overnight. It will cut like a dream. Perfect slices every time!
