“This is one of my family's favorite recipes for banana bread. It is moist and delicious. Freezes well. I sometimes like to add blueberries, nuts, chocolate chips.”

Original recipe yields 1 9x5-inch loaf



  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  2. Beat the egg in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the mayonnaise, bananas, and vanilla extract until evenly mixed. Stir in the flour mixture until no dry lumps remain. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I wasn't sure about the mayo in this, but it turned out great! The end result is a moist, delicious banana bread that doesn't have as many calories and fat grams as most recipes but just as much taste. I am definitely keeping this recipe for future use!

I added a teaspoon of baking powder. I made no other changes. I made muffins out of this recipe. I got exactly 12 and I baked them at 350 for just under 20 minutes. The only issue I had with this banana bread came out dry. My bananas weren't big--all three of them were medium sized which could have been the problem. I really couldn't tell that I baked these with mayonnaise and I'll be honest, I was worried about that. I'd like to try this again with another banana and see if that helps but these really were quite dry.



I have a similar recipe that I tweeked to make it low fat and low sugar. Use 1/2 wheat flour and 1/2 AP flour. Same with sugar = 1/2 splenda 1/2 regular sugar. Instead of mayo (yuk) use low fat sour cream. Add cinnamon and fresh grated nutmeg, to taste. Adds tons of flavor. No one knows that mine is low fat and low sugar. It's that good!!!
