A quick perusal through culinary history tells us that it's possible the type of "quick bread" we call banana bread today could have been made as early as the 19th century. The earliest cookbook reference comes in 1933, and the real explosion in banana bread's popularity appears to come in the 1950's. And we know this for sure: the Banana Bread you'll find on Trader Joe’s fresh bakery racks was baked fresh for us, with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, so it tastes as fresh and wholesome as it would if you'd baked it yourself.
Trader Joe's Fresh Banana Bread is made with simple, wholesome ingredients including very ripe bananas. Try a slice with a cup of hot coffee, tea, or our Chac Mool Spicy Hot Cocoa.
We’re selling each 16 ounce freshly baked Banana Bread for $3.49*, every day.
