These banana bread recipes make a great breakfast, snack or dessert for kids. And if you enjoy cooking with the kids, these recipes are terrific, because they're super simple. For all of these recipes, you want to use the ripest bananas you can find. Black bananas or very spotted bananas are great for banana bread. The more ripe they are, the sweeter your banana bread will be. For variety, try adding spices, nuts, pineapple and sweetened flaked coconut to any of these recipes.

Sour cream in the batter makes this one of the moistest banana breads ever. I like to eat this bread warm, (let it rest about 15 minutes, then slice it) with a smear of cream cheese or butter. Or try one of my flavored butter recipes. The pineapple butter would be especially nice with this recipe. It gives it a tropical flavor.
This is one of those recipes that's perfect for beginning cooks, because it starts with a cake mix. A crunchy streusel topping gives this banana bread extra sweetness. I like to serve this bread for special occasion breakfasts in place of coffee cake.
Coconut oil gives this recipe an incredibly moist texture (moister than butter) with less fat and sugar than most banana breads. Be sure to use virgin coconut oil for this recipe - it's a bit more expensive, but healthier for you.
