Cannabis Banana Bread Recipe

Cannabis Banana Bread Recipe

Picture this: You head to the grocery store and find the perfect, yellow bundle of bananas. You come home, place them on the counter, and plan to eat them throughout the week. But before you know it, they’re brown and spotted.

Sound familiar?

Although less appealing, ripened bananas are much sweeter and perfect for use in baked goods. So, instead of wasting money, turn them into a loaf of banana bread! Warm and gooey, this quick and easy dish will turn any morning (or evening) into a better one.

But this isn’t your average recipe. Our banana bread recipe gives you something extra to enjoy: cannabis!

So, if you fancy a warm slice of banana bread with a cup of milk but also appreciate some hemp-derived bliss every now and then, prepare to whip up a batch of edibles like no other.

How To Make Cannabis Banana Bread

If you’re looking for THC-infused banana bread that is easy to make and packed with flavor, this is the recipe you’ve been waiting for. But to create a treat as delicious as this, it comes down to those brown, overripe bananas.

The bananas should be dark yellow with some browning. The riper it is, the moister and more intense the flavor will be (but not black or entirely brown... ew).

Required Ingredients

  • 1/2 stick of CBD butter or cannabutter
  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Baking Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C ).
  • Grease the loaf pan with butter or non-stick cooking spray, and set aside.
  • Add bananas and melted hemp butter into a large bowl and mash them together until a smooth consistency.
  • Add the vanilla extract and eggs, and mix it until blended.
  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a second bowl.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and mix until combined.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan.
  • Optional: cover the mixture with banana slices or a vertically sliced banana for aesthetic appeal.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick can be inserted into the center of the loaf and come out clean.
  • Let sit on the counter for 15 minutes, then remove from the pan to finish the cooling process.  

How To Store Edible Banana Bread

If you’re planning to eat your loaf over the next few days, wrap it in plastic and leave it on the counter. Avoid storing it in the fridge because it can cause the bread to dry.

However, if you don’t expect to consume your loaf over the next four days, we recommend freezing it.

Depending on your preference, you can either plastic wrap individual slices for convenience or the whole loaf.

Double-wrap the pieces (or loaf) in a resealable bag. Squeeze out as much air without squishing the bread. Mark the date, and place it in the back of the freezer.

From here, the banana bread can keep its flavor and moisture for up to four months in the freezer.

How To Thaw Banana Bread

If you freeze the banana bread in slices, the thawing process can take 30 minutes or less. Unwrap them and leave them on the counter until soft. If you’d rather quicken up the process, put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds or in the toaster for a few minutes.

As for a whole loaf, it can take 4 hours or more until it is defrosted. So if you plan on having a gathering, set it out in the morning, and check on it in a few hours.

If you don’t have time to wait, remove the loaf from the freezer, unwrap it, and turn on the oven to 350°F. Wrap it in foil, set it directly on the rack of your oven, and set a timer for 50 minutes. When it’s done, it should feel soft to the touch. Remove the bread from the oven, and let it sit on the counter for 10 minutes, then dig in. 

Final Thoughts

Whereas normally banana bread is enjoyed before a busy day, this cannabis banana bread is an ideal choice for unwinding for the evening or sharing with other responsible adults.

And by the time you give it a try, you’ll find yourself buying extra bananas at the store to make this recipe.

Our suggestion to spice up this recipe? Add chocolate chips or nuts. Pour the mixture into a muffin tin for banana muffins. The possibilities are endless with this fun, tasty dessert.

But remember, start small. Homemade edibles are challenging to gauge. So begin with a bite or two (not the whole slice), and see how you feel in a few hours.

Until next time, happy exploring, and mind your mind.
