Copycat Starbucks Banana Bread

copycat starbucks banana bread

Are you a Starbucks banana bread fan? I know I am. I’m a huge banana bread fan in general. I feel like their banana bread is extra special and it always goes so great with their hot coffees. This copycat Starbucks banana bread recipe is really close and super easy to make.

I’m a huge Starbucks fan. I’m lucky that there’s one in walking distance of my house! But with the summer heat and two toddlers we don’t always make it. Plus, with two kids they always want their own piece of banana bread or a cake pop and it adds up quickly. We love Starbucks but it is definitely a once in awhile treat for us. Trust me, this momma would love a big cup of coffee every day!

I know that I have been missing all my favorites lately. Luckily, there’s no need to make a Starbucks run when you can make a copycat loaf of their banana bread at home. It tastes very, very close to theirs. It comes out very moist and isn’t difficult to make at all. Plus, banana bread is one of my favorite things to bake because it makes your house smell amazing when it comes out of the oven.
