This slow cooker banana bread comes out to be incredibly moist and is the perfect breakfast or dessert dish.
If you’re feeling a bit adventurous and love a bit of crunch in your banana bread, then try adding some chopped walnuts, almonds or even some pecans. You can also try adding some chocolate chips if you want a delicious blend of chocolate and banana. Whatever you decide to add you will find that 1 cup should be more than enough.
Depending on what you’re after you can just scoop this straight out of the slow cooker and eat it like a pudding or you can leave it to cool and slice it like bread.
There is one thing that I have always loved about doing cakes and desserts in the slow cooker. That one thing is how incredibly hard it is to stuff up the recipe. Very rarely I end up with burnt bread, puddings and other dishes that can so quickly go wrong when you cook in a traditional oven.
The smell that comes from the slow cooker is amazing and an even better reason to cook a banana bread in the slow cooker rather than the oven.

- All slow cookers cook differently so you might find yours will take longer or faster to cook. For example, if you have a smaller slow cooker, then it may take longer since the mixture will be less spread out.
- Overripe bananas are the best to use as they will mash easily. It’s also a great way to use up some bananas if you have too many.
- If you know your bananas are a bit bland, then you might want to increase the amount of sugar in the recipe to about 1 cup.
- Doubling this recipe will add to the cooking time, I would add 2-4 hours onto the cooking time if you end up doing this.

If you feel like eating a pudding but want something fruity, then the peach cobbler is pretty amazing. You can make it with either fresh, canned or even frozen peaches.
