Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Line a 9×5” loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 2

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat to 350℉.

Step 3

Peel 3 very ripe bananas and place in a medium size bowl.

Step 4

To the bowl, add ¼ cup of sour cream, 2 large eggs and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mash all of the ingredients together.

Step 5

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add 1 ¼ cups of all-purpose flour.

Step 6

To the stand mixer, add ½ cup of virgin coconut oil and ½ cup of sugar.

Step 7

To the stand mixer, add ½ teaspoon of baking powder, ½ teaspoon of baking soda, ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon.

Step 8

To the stand mixer, add ¼ teaspoon of ground cloves and ⅛ teaspoon of grated nutmeg.

Step 9

Mix on low with the paddle attachment until the texture resembles a mealy powder.

Step 10

Add in the banana mash and continue mixing, just until no dry flour remains.

Step 11

Fold in ½ cup of butterscotch chips with a flexible spatula and pour into your prepared loaf pan.

Step 12

Place the pan into the oven and bake for 70 minutes or until well risen and golden brown.

Note: If you have an instant read thermometer, shoot for an internal temperature of 206℉.

Step 13

Once cooked, remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.

Step 14

While cooling, in a small mixing bowl, add 2 cups of confectioner’s sugar with ¼ cup of buttermilk. Mix well, then drizzle the glaze over the loaf.

Note: Banana bread will keep for up to 3 days at room temperature or a week in the refrigerator.
