The World's Juiciest Banana Bread (Really)
Banana bread - some love it, others don't. It is so versatile, easy to prepare and ideal as a snack to take away (meal prep).
Surprisingly, banana bread contains a larger amount of bananas ;-), which by the way are among the most nutritious and healthiest fruits. Accordingly, they are super suppliers of energy, which should be of particular interest to the “top athletes” among us. In addition to sugar and fiber, bananas also contain the two minerals magnesium and potassium as well as the four trace elements iron, zinc, calcium and phosphorus. They support muscle and nerve functions, the electrolyte balance and help the body to generate energy. On paper, everything speaks for you to treat yourself to banana bread on a regular basis.
From my point of view, other advantages are that the bread tastes good both with and without a topping. It's a great snack to take to the office, to college, or pack for your kids to take to school. I like it best with a bit of butter and cheese. But it also tastes fantastic with sweet spreads or without anything.

Baking time: 35 mins

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (circulating air) and bake the bread for about 35-40 minutes. to bake. Definitely do a sample.
Allow the bread to cool and wrap it in a tea towel.
