Butterscotch Banana Bread Recipe

This Butterscotch Banana Bread will blow you away. It is the BEST banana bread recipe, and it's incredibly easy to make. The butterscotch chips give it the perfect amount of sweetness. You will not be disappointed by this banana bread. And the butterscotch chips are the perfect combo with the delicious banana flavor.

My family loves banana bread. We often have brown ripe bananas at our house, so we love trying new flavors of banana bread.  With the added butterscotch chips, we have a new favorite.

Am I the only one that buys bananas each week at the grocery store, thinking I’m going to eat them. Every week I buy a bundle, and there they sit.

They have a small window of ripeness when they are perfect to eat, and if I miss the window they don’t get eaten.

Luckily this bread has been saving my life, and I don’t even want to eat the bananas when they are perfectly yellow, because I want to save my bananas to make this Butterscotch bread.

It’s quick, simple, moist, and the perfect banana bread recipe. You’ll love the butterscotch and banana flavor.

We love making this bread in 3 mini loaf pans. They are great as neighbor gifts and you still have a loaf for your family!

what is the best way to store Butterscotch banana bread?

Our whole family loves this butterscotch banana bread so we rarely have any leftovers. However, if you do have some leftover, the best way to store it is putting the loaves in the fridge.

We recommend placing them in an air tight storage container, and putting them in the fridge.

If you aren’t going to eat them for more than a week, we recommend freezing them. Again the best way to freeze them is placing them in a freezer bag or an airtight storage container and putting them in the freezer.

They will last nicely in the freezer for about 4 weeks, and in the fridge, about 3-5 days.

To thaw them, just remove from the freezer and thaw on the counter. You could also place them in the fridge overnight for a slow thaw.

banana bread add ins:

This bread is delicious with the butterscotch chips. However if you don’t like butterscotch, here are a few add ins we highly recommend:

  • M&M’s
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Walnuts or pecans
  • Cream cheese swirls
  • Nutella
  • Chopped Snickers Bars

  1. My kids have an unspoken house rule. NEVER eat the last 3 bananas. They know that if there are 3 browning bananas, I will always make banana bread! It is funny when one of them comes in to see only two bananas hanging on the holder. "Hey! Who ate a banana?" I will try the butterscotch chips in my next loaf. I usually use mini chocolate chips, but butterscotch chips sound delicious! Thanks!
  2. I made two loaves of this bread a few days ago and I am making more today. The butterscotch gives it a wonderful flavor! I did leave out the nutmeg as I don't care for the taste of it and this time I am going to flourthe butterscotch chips as they wanted to sink to the bottom of the bread. This is a winner!!

    I made this bread and everyone loved it! However, the butterscotch likes to sink to the bottom and makes the sides very dark. I see someone had the same problem and is going to try tossong them in flour. Do you think this will do the trick? I was thinking of chopping them up some so they wouldn't be. So big and hopefully not sink and burn. I hope you read and reply to your comments. This is the first time I'm post a comment. I've made several of your recipes and theyare all great!

    I chose this recipe for our bake swap day. I doubled the recipe and made 3- 8x3 loaves. I added more butterscotch as I just used 2 full bags for the double recipe. Amazing doesn't really describe this recipe. My husband, who doesn't like butterscotch, declared it the best banana bread he ever tasted. In fact, after the first double batch I made another 3 loaves (for family) and my husband doesn't want to give them out! For those that don't like butterscotch I still recommend it. The butterscotch gives it an incredible flavor, but not exactly a butterscotch taste. 5 stars. I couldn't be more impressed with this recipe and everyone loved it!
