Granola Topped Banana Bread

A delicious and creative way to incorporate a little extra crunch in your banana bread! You can use any kind you want, we used our Fruit Cave flavor that we sell at the market!

Try it topped with a little greek yogurt and fresh berries!

  • 1/4 cup butter (or butter substitute), softened
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 egg (or equivalent egg substitute), beaten
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite granola

Preheat your oven to 350F. If you’re using a cast iron bread pan, remember to put it into your cold oven before preheating.

  1. Whisk together your flours, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, cream together your butter and sugar until fluffy.
  3. Add in your egg and vanilla, and mix until well combined.
  4. Mix in your mashed bananas.
  5. Gently mix in your flour mixture, stirring until just combined.
  6. Pour into a greased loaf pan, and sprinkle the granola evenly on top of the batter.
  7. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until the batter doesn’t shake anymore, and a toothpick comes out almost clean. (Due to the amount of banana it won’t come out completely clean like a cake, but you don’t want to pull out a toothpick and have it pick up a ton of batter.)
  8. Allow to cool for 15-30 minutes before serving or storing. Enjoy!

Tip: If during the baking process, your granola looks or smells like it’s turning too toasted, feel free to cover the top with aluminum foil to prevent burning.
