Crock Pot Banana Bread

Now here is an easy crock pot banana bread recipe you have to try. Wondering, can you bake in your slow cooker? Why yes you can. And I am loving this way to bake in the crock pot without heating up the kitchen.

I made this banana bread in the crock pot in my smaller round crock pot so if you have a large crock pot adjust the recipe.

Crock Pot Banana Bread

Recipe by Elaine Lewis

Prep time: 20 minutes
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash ground nutmeg
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3 mashed ripe bananas or you can use dehydrated
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup plus a tablespoon cooking oil
  • handful chopped nuts
  • generous splash (optional) mini chocolate chips
Cooking Directions
This is for a smaller round crock pot. First, take a square of foil and press in down into the bottom of the cooker with sides extending up the sides of the slow cooker. Spray with non stick spray. Turn crock pot on high.

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. In medium bowl mix eggs, bananas, sugar and oil. Add to dry ingredients. Stir just until moistened. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips. Spoon batter into foil lined crock pot.

Cook on high for about an hour to an hour and a half. Slow cooker temperatures vary so widely that you just need to check periodically with a toothpick until it comes out clean.


  1. It looks really good and moist!!! I've never baked a cake or bread in the crockpot. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    1. I have done cornbread too. Can't stand to turn on oven in summer but sometimes you just want some homemade baked goods.

  2. I love using my crock pot, but didn't know you could make desserts.
    thanks for the recipe!

  3. I've never cooked bread or dessert in a crockpot but I'm willing to give it a try! :)
