2 Ingredient Banana Bread
You will be floored with how simple this banana bread is. Just 2 simple ingredients and a loaf pan. That’s it! I topped mine off with chocolate ganache but you can certainly omit it and leave it as is. It will be delicious regardless.
So, have you guessed what 2 the ingredients are? I’ll give you a clue: Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey Ice Cream and self-rising flour. If you don’t have this kind of flour in your pantry, don’t worry. You can use regular all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. I will give you the ratios below.
I LOVE Chunky Monkey ice cream! It has banana ice cream, fudge chunks and walnuts. Ever since I was little, I’ve been addicted this flavor. Plus the name is super cool. See how the chocolate chunks melt inside the bread.
My inspiration for this 2 Ingredient Banana Bread came from a Tasty Video I saw on Facebook last week. It had a different kind of ice cream but it gave you the whole idea. After I saw it, a lightbulb turned on in my brain and it read: Chunky Monkey. Since I am a super fan of banana bread, I was wondering if my idea would work. Surprisingly it did.
This 2 Ingredient Banana Bread is perfect for brunch, breakfast, and even afternoon tea. My girls came home from school to find this yummy treat on the kitchen island and they were super happy. Those 2 slices you see on the pics are all gone and I am sure that after my husband comes home, the banana bread will disappear.
I hope you can try this delicious 2 Ingredient Banana Bread at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.
