Brown Butter Banana Bread Recipe

This Brown Butter Banana Bread is so easy to make, and gives the bread such a rich taste. Put those bananas to use, and give this recipe a try. You will not be disappointed.

I have seen so many recipes lately that have browned butter in them, but have yet to try it. I finally decided to give it a whirl and knew I couldn’t go wrong with banana bread.

The brown butter gives  the bread such a rich taste. I don’t know how else to explain it, so you’ll just have to try it for yourself.

It came together quickly and was not difficult at all. I also felt that the bread was a little more moist and full of flavor than any other banana bread recipe I have tried.

This is my new go to banana bread recipe from here on out.

could i make these in a muffin tin?

For this recipe, we used a loaf ban, to create the bread. However, you could easily make this using a muffin tin, or even a mini muffin tin.

We recommend using cupcake liners, or spraying each individual muffin compartment with non-stick cooking spray, to help the muffins come out easier.

If you don’t spray the pan or use a cupcake liner, you may have some difficulty getting the muffins out. For best results spray the pan, or line with cupcake liner.

does this bread freeze well?

This bread does freeze extremely well. We recommend placing slices or muffins in an individual snack bag, and removing them from the fridge when needed.

You could also freeze them in an airtight container.

We recommend thawing them by placing them out for a few hours on the counter, or in the fridge over night or even 24 hours, depending on how much bread you thawed.

These work great for breakfast on the go, or dessert in my kids home lunches.
