This banana bread with ricotta is the most delicious banana bread you will ever have! Made with ricotta, olive oil and ripe bananas for a rich, moist breakfast bread that you’ll eat right out of the oven.





  • Use ripe bananas. Ripe bananas add a lot more moisture and sweetness to baked goods. Bananas that are brown with spots, or even almost black work really well.
  • Fully mash the bananas. Make sure the bananas are fully mashed. They can be slightly lumpy, but avoid leaving any large chunks of banana.
