We had 2 bananas lying around in the kitchen that were really overripe so I thought I’d make a small batch of banana bread instead. I love storing food in jars so I baked these using a cupcake molder instead of a loaf pan (thus, “banana bread bites”). Since we only had a small amount of bananas, I used some leftover sour cream as a substitute. I’ve included the actual amount of bananas that would be needed for this recipe, if there was no need for a substitution. This recipe yields about 11 pieces of delicious, moist banana bread bites. **Finished it all in two days. Lol. ♡


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tbsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sour cream**

If I didn’t substitute sour cream, I’d use:

  • 1 1/4 cups of mashed bananas

Vegan option:

  • 1/4 margarine instead of butter
  • 1/4 cup of mashed bananas instead of egg. Can also use ground flax seed+water mixture


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Mash the bananas in a bowl and set aside
  3. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside
  4. Mix the brown sugar and butter until smooth. Some people like to work with room temp butter. For this one, I just melted it in the microwave and waited for it to cool down. It worked just as fine. Then, add in the egg, bananas, vanilla and sour cream
  5. Add in the flour+baking soda+salt mixture and mix well
  6. Pour the banana bread batter into silicone cupcake molders/pan, instead of a loaf pan
  7. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins. Make sure to do a toothpick check just to make sure. And enjoy!
