The bananas I purchased the other day on one of my extreme couponing canada shopping trips, were finally ripe enough for baking! So today I set aside an hour to make a couple of loaves. Banana bread is my all time favorite thing to bake because it’s so simple and is great for a snack or a quick breakfast. After experimenting with the ingredients my first few times, I found the perfect amounts for the ideal moisture and sweetness, which I’ll share with you here. You don’t need a mixer for this recipe, so you’ll likely be able to make it with things you already have around the house!  I made 2 loaves, so I just doubled all the ingredients.

In additional to being very easy to make, this banana bread was also very cheap to make! In my previous post I purchased 11 bananas for $0.99 and used 8 of them for 2 loaves of bread. Sugar and butter I always purchase from SDM on 20x points or redemption days and the flour was $2.99 (after coupon) for a 5kg sack. A loaf of banana bread costs $1.95 + tax from Starbucks. All in all, this recipe probably cost me about $1.50 total to make 2 loaves of banana bread which goes to show that extreme couponing canada principles can be applied to how we bake as well!
