Mini Blackberry Banana Breads. Indulge your craving for sweet and moist banana bread with this small batch recipe. Baked in ramekins for two delicious servings and no tempting leftovers.
Well we’ve been on quite the sweets kick this month with Peppermint Shortbread Cookies and then Chocolate Dipped Lemon Macaroons. I promise there are savory recipes headed your way but first you must try these mini banana breads.
That’s right I said breads.
This simple recipe (baked in ramekins) makes two adorable moist and tasty mini whole grain banana breads. The perfect warm treat for sharing on a lazy weekend morning.
Or you can freeze the second one to be on stand-by for a late night snack attack. The sweet-tart blackberry banana combo tastes great warmed and spread with peanut butter, Mmmmm peanut butter 🙂
This recipe is really a jumping off point; you can switch out the blackberries for blueberries or go classic style with chopped nuts.
You can bake it in a mini loaf pan like our Petite Whole Grain Banana Bread if you prefer your bread in slices or want to gift it to a neighbor. A small handful of chocolate chips would elevate the bread to a desserty level anyone would be pleased to receive.
I actually had two very specific reason for choosing this flavor combo:
- Berries + Bananas = Crazy Delicious
- My nephew, who is my favorite person loves blackberries and bananas and he has a special day coming up.
And special days call for cake!
With a few extra blackberries and a small batch of frosting you can easily transform these mini blackberry banana breads into a tiny layer cake fit for a celebration.
To make the cake start by slicing each cooled banana bread in half width-wise. Place a bottom slice on a small plate and spread with a layer of your favorite frosting (like the honey ricotta frosting from our Lemon Coconut Donuts) top with a couple of berries or a few chocolate chips and cover with another banana bread half. Repeat layers.
Finish by covering the whole mini cake with the remaining frosting and then get ready to party 🙂
Whether you have a reason to celebrate (Happy Birthday Monkey!) or just want to indulge your sweet tooth these versatile mini banana breads are prefect for any occasion.
