Homemade Convenience Food Series #2: Banana Bread

I don’t have a lot of time in the mornings before work and never feel like doing food prep so it’s wonderful to be able to just grab and go.

Since being single, I can’t count the number of times I’ve made banana bread and ended up throwing some of it away because it got stale before I could eat it all.

So now what I do is make a loaf, or even two, let it cool, slice and freeze in individual plastic bags, leaving a portion to eat fresh that day.  I’ll do it on the weekend when I have time and enjoy cooking.

Then all I have to do is grab one or two to take to work.  By the time break or lunch hits, it’s thawed. I’ll bring a small container with some butter too.

Any banana bread recipe will do.  I use the one I’ve always used from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

This could be done with any quick bread recipe!

  1. That’s exactly how it’s done, Monica! Of course I say that, because it’s what I do. Thanks for confirming!

    One trick, too, is to wrap the bread (or whatever) in plastic wrap before sealing it in the freezer bag. That way, something like 97.43% of the original moistness is maintained.

    Well, I do love me some banana bread. Bananas by themselves, meh. In bread, muffins, Bananas Foster, etc., ambrosia!

  2. I like that you have found a solution here. I think the little things like this add up towards feeling more empowered alone.

    I managed three loads of laundry yesterday with my music on whilst entertaining my children and felt more in control.
