There is nothing I love more than being able to throw something together in my slow cooker and then having a delicious meal ready a few hours later. This Slow Cooker Banana Bread recipe is a wonder fall delight. You put your ingredients in and about 2 hours later you have banana bread. No fuss, no muss. And your house smells wonderful. It's a perfect fall recipe, although, really—banana bread can be made any time of the year.
Slow Cooker Banana Bread
- 5 ripe and/or overripe bananas
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- ¼–½ c. walnuts
- Mash the bananas and the milk together in a bowl. Add the vanilla extract.
- Mix in the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix well.
- Pour into a parchment lined slow cooker (or grease it very well). Sprinkle the nuts on the top.
- Place a clean tea towel over the slow cooker bowl and place the lid on top of that.
