Friends, it is no secret that I love banana bread. Not only have I shared over a dozen banana bread recipes on my blog, over the years, but it’s truly one of the healthiest, most delicious treats that you can make. Bananas are rich in vitamins and are one of the highest sources of potassium, and when they’re baked into rich banana bread, it tastes like a decadent dessert that both kids and adults alike, will enjoy. Even though my boys are picky eaters these days, banana bread is one of the sure-fire recipes that I KNOW they will love. And here’s a mom tip: I love keeping some in my freezer, at all times, for those moments where they just won’t eat anything else. 😉

But whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, I think we can all agree that banana bread is delicious. So when my Sheet Pan Pancakes went viral earlier this year, I knew that I needed to make a spin on it with the perfect meal-prepped banana bread. And friends, let me tell you…. this recipe is perfect. It’s simple, it’s easy to make, it’s meal-prep friendly, and it makes the perfect banana bread slices, every time. So, what are you waiting for? RUN to your kitchen and make this recipe as soon as possible!!

What You Need to Make This Meal-Prepped Banana Bread

  • Bananas: After all, what is banana bread without bananas?! Make sure your bananas are super ripe, so that they’re extra sweet.
  • Coconut Sugar: If you need to substitute the coconut sugar, make sure you substitute for another dry sweetener. A liquid sweetener like maple syrup or honey will change the texture and consistency of the bread, so I don’t recommend a liquid sweetener!
  • Coconut Oil: A little coconut oil will help this bread have the perfect texture.
  • Eggs: I use real eggs in this recipe. You CAN replace it with a flax egg, by whisking together 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed meal and 6 tablespoons water, and let it sit for about 5 minutes, until the mixture thickens. You can also replace the eggs with 1/3 cup of applesauce.
  • Gluten-Free Flour: This recipe requires gluten-free flour
  • Rolled Oats: Rolled oats not only add healthy fiber, but adds a touch of protein as well.
  • Baking Soda: Baking soda will help this banana bread to rise!
  • Sea Salt: A hint of sea salt ensures this recipe isn’t too sweet.
  • Cinnamon: The cinnamon adds the best taste, so don’t skip it!
  • Chocolate Chips: Of course, what would chocolate cinnamon banana bread be without chocolate chips? I love using the Hu chocolate chunks in this recipe (Code KALEJUNKIE gets you 15% off!)

How to Make This Simple & Easy Sheet Pan Banana Bread

Making this banana bread is so simple and easy, you’ll want to make it every week! Simply start by preheating your oven to 350 F and thoroughly grease an 11×7 sheet pan with oil spray.

Next, in a large bowl, add in your bananas and mash them well. Add in your coconut sugar, melted coconut oil, and egg, and mix until fully combined.

Then, add the flour, oats, baking soda, sea salt, and cinnamon to the same bowl, and mix until a batter forms. Once it’s all fully combined, fold in the chocolate chips.

Once the chocolate chips are folded in, transfer your batter to a baking dish and use a spatula to spread it into an even layer.

Bake your Sheet Pan Banana Bread for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Once it’s done, let it cool, then slice it into 12 slices.

Serve immediately, or store any leftover slices in an airtight container in the fridge, for up to five days. Enjoy!
