If you’re like me and make banana bread in bulk as a healthy snack, you want to know how to store banana bread! I’ll tell you a few simple steps for what’s the best way to keep you banana bread fresh.
All my tips are the things I’ve tested and experienced myself with my recipe for healthy banana bread. It’s the perfect recipe to use your overripe bananas to make a quick bread that is easy and delicious.
How to store banana bread
Let start at the beginning, right after your homemade banana bread comes out of the oven. Of course, you let it cool first until the bread is at room temperature. After that, you can decide how you want to store it. I’ll start with storing on room temperature, followed by storing your banana bread in the freezer (and how to thaw it correctly).
Store at room temperature
I always store my banana bread at room temperature, the shelf life of banana bread is 2-3 days this way. Most of the time, I just wrap the entire loaf in aluminum foil and place it on the kitchen counter.
When I don’t use aluminum foil, I use an airtight container or a ziploc freezer bag to store my loaf of banana bread. You could also use you loaf pan when you store the bread om room temperature.
I never store my banana bread in the refrigerator by the way. It is possible, but I find that the colder temperature makes your banana bread less moist and if not packaged well, it can dry out your loaf too. I’ll just store it for a few days on the counter, and after that in the freezer. That works best for me.
