About this Recipe

Who doesn’t like banana bread and who doesn’t love bacon? This is so yummy, moist and delicious!


1 Pkg (375 g) Schneiders® Country Naturals® Bacon, chopped
1/4-1/2 cup (60-125 mL) Vegetable oil
1-3/4 cups (425 mL) All purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) Baking soda
3/4 tsp (4 mL) Kosher salt
3 Large eggs
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) Sugar
1 cup (250 mL) Mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large bananas)
1 tsp (5 mL) Vanilla extract


HEAT a large skillet over medium-high. Add bacon and cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally until crisp and golden. Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon. Pour the bacon drippings into a 1-cup (250 mL) measuring pitcher. Add enough oil to the bacon drippings to make ¾ cup (175 mL). Set aside.

PREHEAT the oven to 350F (180°C). Lightly spray a 9x5x3” (23x13x7 cm) loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and kosher salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together eggs, sugar, bananas, vanilla, and bacon drippings with oil in a separate large bowl. Stir in dry ingredients along with bacon bits until just combined.

POUR the mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick, when inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the inside of the pan and turn bread out onto a rack to cool.
