This 3 ingredient banana cornbread recipe is so easy and perfect for a side dish- especially if you don't want to use eggs! It's moist, flavorful, and perfect for dinner.
We love this easy cornbread recipe because it's so fast and simple to throw together. Thanks to Jiffy we have everything we need except a little binder and liquid. That's where the banana and milk come in. 😉
While this banana bread recipe may not taste like banana bread, it does taste like cornbread. The banana flavor is pretty subtle so you don't have to worry about adding it as a side dish next to chili or something you wouldn't normally eat with bananas.
Eat this cornbread banana bread as a snack with honey on top, turn it into muffins, or simply enjoy it as a side dish to your favorite meals. There's no wrong way to enjoy it.
- Ripe banana
- Jiffy corn muffin mix

🍴 Recipe Tips
This recipe makes one small loaf's worth but you can also turn it into muffins using the recipe card's notes.
You could double this recipe but the bake time will increase by about 5-10 minutes so instead of 30 minutes it will take closer to 35-40.
If desired you can also add in up to ½ cup of chopped nuts like walnuts.
You can make banana corn muffins by dividing this batter of Jiffy cornbread mix with bananas between 6 greased muffin cups and baking for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and come out clean.
This cornbread should be good for up to 3 days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature. I recommend eating it sooner rather than later so that it tastes fresh and doesn't dry out.
