When I look at my regular banana bread recipe it has a LOT of ingredients listed. Most of the banana bread recipes I see have at least 7 ingredients.

So when I heard that there was a 3 ingredient banana bread recipe floating around I knew I needed to try it out for myself.

The good news is that this DOES work and it is VERY good! My kids can even make banana bread with this easy recipe! If you want a couple of other banana bread recipes your kids would like, here’s a Nutella Banana Bread Recipe and Banana Bread Pudding.

I love a good sweet bread recipe. Sweet breads work so perfectly for breakfast, snacks and when company is over.

One of my favorite sweet breads is Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bread. It is sweet and decadent.

Sometimes I just want a simple and quick sweet bread and that is where this 3 ingredient banana bread comes into play.

Are you anxious to find out what the 3 ingredients are for this banana bread? Ready, set, go…

All I have to do to be ready to make this bread is make sure to keep some yellow cake mixes on hand in the pantry! I usually always have bananas and eggs on hand. You can also use all of those ingredients to make a Banana Pudding Poke Cake too!

This recipe couldn’t be easier to make and you probably won’t need the recipe card after you make it a couple of times!

Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.

I like to go ahead and grease my loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray, but it is optional.


Place the bananas into a mixing bowl and mash them.

Add the yellow cake mix and eggs and mix well with a hand mixer or stand mixer.


Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for about an hour. Check for doneness with a toothpick in the center of the loaf.

Remove from oven when the bread is done in the center and the top is light golden brown.

Although this is a simple recipe it is always nice to have it in the recipe binder! You can print off the complete ingredients and instructions for 3 ingredient banana bread below on the recipe card.
