Crock-Pot Banana Bread


Crock-Pot Banana Bread

Whenever the banana’s get brown and no one wants to eat them, I turn them into banana bread.  This quick and easy recipe for Crock-Pot Banana Bread is the perfect way to make up something delicious and use up those over-ripe bananas.

The reason why I love cooking banana bread in the slow cooker versus in the oven is that I don’t have to turn on the oven and heat up the whole house.

Plus this recipe just makes for a nice sweet moist bread when cooked this way.

You can make this bread even more delicious by adding some walnuts or pecans or even some chocolate chips!

I hope you enjoy this banana bread recipe as much as I do!

      You should be able to put it right in the bottom of the crock. I use the dish just so it is easier to contain and remove. Or you might try a small baking pan if you have one that fits. Either way butter the side good so you can remove the banana bread.

        I doubled this recipe, added 1 tsp Mexican vanilla and lined my 6 qt crock-pot with a slow cooker liner( bag-like) and it’s fabulous!!!! When cool, just lift the bag out.

        PS: I sprayed the liner with cooking spray

        • Lady Katie says

          Gale that is a great idea! hmmmm now to rethink a few other recipes I have been itching to try in the crock-pot.

  1. Mark Jerndt says

    I normally bake banana bread in loaf pans. Thought I would try this receipe. Was very disappointed. It did not rise much and had trouble getting it out of the crockpot afterwards. To its credit, it nevertheless tasted good, but very heavy.

  2. Teri C says

    I did this Banana Bread in my Crock, it was GREAT, i did cut cooking time down tho as my pot seems to get way to hot..

    • Lady Katie says

      yes! I would line the smaller crock pot with a piece of foil and then either spray grease the foil or grease it with a little butter. The foil will allow you to pull out the bread in one piece.

    I tried this recipe today and was a little skeptical since it was done in a crockpot and not the oven. So I tried it and about 3 hours later my crockpot was smelling horrible and the bread was burnt but i thought maybe its my crockpot and took the bread out. My husband and I both tried it and it was bad, it tasted similar to plastic. I am not sure if I did something wrong, as far as I can see I followed the recipe, maybe it was just my poor cooking skills. hmmm

    • Lady Katie says

      I am sorry this didnt work out. Did it seem like it was cooked thru? or cooked too much? Do you have a newer crock-pot? Some of the newer ones seem to run at a higher temperature.

    I am making this now. I have done crockpot pumpkin bars and that recipe had you put water in the crockpot and then the pan on top. I didn’t do that, are we supposed to? This smells heavenly now. I can’t wait to try this…Thanks!!

    It’s in the crockpot (I’d put it into the 2qt before reading allll the words :D so now it’s in the 6qt.) We’re on a banana kick in our house so I’m hoping for the best! :D

    I added 1/2 cup chopped pecans and 1tbl vanilla.

  6. Shelli says

    I cooked it in a 6qt crock pot for 4 hours on low. The sides weren’t burnt, but close. The top still seems gooey. Did it not cook long enough, and it was to hot even on low?

  7. Kate says

    Just made this. It exceeded expectations! Super delicious and a great texture. I’m going to try to use this as a template to make slow cooker pumpkin bread. Will also be checking out more recipes on this site. Thanks for a great one.

    • Lady Katie says

      Your bread should be fine without a liner or foil. You might want to use some spray oil on the crock-pot itself to keep the bread from sticking.

  8. Crystal says

    I didn’t have a “small crock dish” to put this in, so I put the mixture in my 2 qt crock inside my 7qt crockpot. It came out great, however it took 8 hours on low. Thinking of trying High heat next time, or maybe buying the dish it needs.

    Loved the bread, thanks for the recipe! My boyfriend is already talking about next time!

    I have made this crockpot banana bread a couple of days ago and it turned out fine. My only complaint is that I found that the texture is not as moist as the usual oven baked banana bread I make.

    Question: Can I use any cake or recipe that is baked in the oven and “bake” it in the crock pot? Would I have to adjust the ratio of wet /ingredients from the oven recipe ? Please advise. Thanks.

    • Lady Katie says

      You can bake any cake/bread in the crock-pot. I have had a few breads just come out horrible and wrote it off as not good for the crock-pot. But cake mixes and cakes work just fine in the crock-pot and you do not need to add any additional wet ingredients.

    Cooked in Brock pot on LOW for two hours and already sides and bottom are burning and the middle is raw. Just switched it to warming to see if it can be salvaged.
