I honestly feel as though bananas give you .02 seconds to eat them before they turn completely brown. When I stumbled across this banana split bread recipe years ago, I knew I had found a delicious solution to this never-ending problem. It’s so simple to throw together and my entire family loves it! It’s best served warm w/ a bit of butter. You can also easily throw it into a lined muffin tin for an easy, on the go snack.



  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (Miracle Whip does not have the same affect)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • Optional: maraschino cherries & 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375* Fahrenheit
  2. In a large bowl or stand mixer with paddle attachment, mash your bananas. Add mayonnaise and stir until combined.
  3. Mix in flour, sugar, and baking soda until thoroughly mixed together. Stir in chocolate chips and optional chopped walnuts.
  4. In greased mini bread pans or a lined muffin tin, fill each cavity 1/2 way with mixture.
  5. Bake for 25-30 mins, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle.
  6. Press optional halved maraschino cherries onto tops of bread or muffins. Let cool on a wire rack.
