Easy Banana Bread with Pancake Mix

If you're looking for an easy and delicious banana bread recipe, this one is definitely worth trying. It's made with one of my favorite pancake mixes, Bisquick mix, so it's simple to put together. Plus the end result tastes amazing! You'll love how moist, fluffy, and packed with flavor it is.

We always have bananas in our house but sometimes, they don't get eaten before they turn and my favorite way to use overripe bananas is, of course, to bake!

I usually bake either this classic banana bread recipe, or banana cake with browned butter frosting or my favorite this moist banana cake with homemade cream cheese frosting --- they are all soo good!

I'm always looking for new ways to make this family (and personal) favorite and since I had already made a few loaves using protein pancake mix with Kodiak cakes mix I figured that since I had a big box of Bisquick I would give it a try.  

But now, I'll be adding this Bisquick banana bread recipe to my list of delicious options...it's that good and a great way to use up mushy bananas.

📖 Variations

  • Use any extra banana bread to make a delicious French toast. Add a drizzle of maple syrup for a wonderful breakfast treat!


🍌 How to Store and Freeze Banana Bread

Banana bread can be kept on the counter for up to 3 days if tightly sealed. I like to slice mine and place it in either a glass container with a lid , storage bag, or your favorite airtight container. You could also use plastic wrap or aluminum foil, whichever works best for you.

To FREEZE: Once your loaf has cooled off you can slice it and freeze it. You can also freeze it whole by placing it in a freezer bag or by wrapping it in plastic wrap then aluminum foil.

Top tip

 Add ½ cup of sour cream for an extra moist loaf.
