How To Make Cannabis Banana Bread That Tastes Amazing

Who doesn’t love a good banana bread? For many, it’s a nostalgic treat. The thought alone conjures up memories of the sweet scent of a freshly baked loaf wafting through the house or biting into a sill warm slice slathered with butter. 

One of the best things about banana bread is that it’s easy to throw together. It’s also incredibly versatile. You can add some chocolate chips, walnuts, or a bit of cinnamon for a different, yet still delicious, flavor. Want to spice things up even more? Take your experience to a whole new level with some tasty cannabis banana bread.

Ensure You Have Some Very Ripe Bananas

Whether you’re cooking with cannabis or not, good banana bread requires very ripe bananas. They’re sweeter and impart more banana flavor.  

Make Your Cannabutter (Or Oil)

The key to cannabis banana bread is cannabis, of course. Try infusing the butter or oil you plan to use with your desired strain. Doing so makes the cannabinoids more bioavailable, allowing your digestive system to absorb them more easily.  

  • Select your strain. You can use one or combine a couple of your favorites to tailor your experience.
  • Decarb your buds. Bake broken-up or roughly ground buds in the oven at 220° F for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring them at least once to ensure even decarboxylation. 
  • Infuse. Mix decarbed, cooled buds in melted butter or oil. Simmer over low heat for a few hours, stirring periodically. When your infusion is ready, strain the mixture and store it in an airtight container. 

Butter imparts a richer flavor. Oil ensures your banana bread is nice and moist. The choice is yours. You can even use both!

5 Steps to Delicious Cannabis Banana Bread

Here are the basic steps you’ll need to follow for a delectable cannabis banana bread.

  • Preheat your oven to 350° F (or whatever temperature the recipe calls for) before you get started. 
  • Mix your dry and wet ingredients separately. Pour the wet into the dry, and combine. 
  • Toss in a teaspoon or so of cinnamon, a cup of chocolate chips, or a cup of chopped walnuts.  
  • Grease your loaf pans.
  • Bake until you can insert a toothpick into it, and it comes out clean. Banana bread typically needs 50 to 60 minutes in the oven. 
  • Pro tip: Add some extra cannabutter while your cannabis banana bread is still warm
