Sliced banana bread with walnuts


CBD edibles are a common way of enjoying CBD benefits. You do not need to take CBD in the form of oil or tinctures anymore if you do not like its naked taste.

Banana bread with CBD is among the edibles that you will enjoy eating and also benefit from the CBD in it. Read through this article to understand what CBD is, and how you can infuse it into your banana bread.

What is Banana Bread with CBD?

It is an enjoyable bread containing some extra ingredients, such the banana, and CBD. According to Hilderbrand (2018), CBD is derived from the hemp plant. Gonen & Amital (2020) also found that it is a non-psychoactive element with anti-inflammatory and antidepressant properties that treat conditions such as depression and pain. Bananas are rich in sugars and potassium. Therefore, eating banana bread with CBD gives you a chance to take in several nutrients. Users of this ingredient are advised to be careful when buying CBD products. Lachenmeier et al. (2019) argued that some of the products may contain THC, a compound in the hemp plant that makes its users high. Baking banana bread saves you from the worry of taking THC unknowingly. You can incorporate CBD in your banana bread by adding CBD oil or butter.

Tips to get the Best Banana Bread

Baking the best banana bread with the recipe depends on handling the ingredients. This includes how you mix and store them. As Trofin et al. (2011) emphasized, CBD oil might lose its potency if exposed to very high temperatures and light. Therefore, while baking, endure your oven temperatures do not exceed 350 degrees. CBD oil or butter should be stored in air-tight containers in a dark, cool room. While baking, you can choose to add CBD towards the end of preparing the dough. This minimizes the chances of losing CBD potency. When mixing the ingredients, use medium speed. After preparing the dough, give it a few minutes to relax before baking to allow gluten strands to stretch for better results. To enhance the taste of your bread, you may also choose to use flavored CBD oil. For the best banana bread, use a ripe banana. Do not over-bake your bread. Baking time should not exceed 65 minutes.

Tool Required

Baking banana bread with CBD does not require so much equipment. You only need the following basic tools

  • An oven
  • Cooling rack wire
  • 3measuring cups
  • Whipping stick or an electric beater
  • One large mixing bowl
  • 2 small bowls
  • Baking tray
  • 2 teaspoons

Banana Bread with CBD: Ingredients

  • ½  cup melted butter
  • 3 medium-sized eggs at room temperatures
  • 2 ½  cups all-purpose baking flour
  • 200 ml CBD oil
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 3 overripe bananas
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups of boiled milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to about 350 degrees. It may take around 20 minutes to reach the intended temperatures. This will give you enough time to prepare the dough and line the baking tin as the oven heat. If you doubt your oven thermometer, you can use a separate oven thermometer for accuracy.
  • Line the baking tin using baking paper. Smear some butter on the base and dust with some baking flour. Lining the baking tin prevents your loaf from sticking to the tin
  • In the large mixing bowl, put the ripe bananas and thoroughly mash them using a fork or a wooden whipping stick until they are smooth.
  • Add butter into the bowl and mix well.
  • Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and add them to the large mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients.
  • Add the vanilla extract. Mix well
  • Sieve the dry ingredients (Sugar, baking soda, salt, baking flour) into the bowl and mix them with the other ingredients using a mixer. Sieving your dry ingredients helps to incorporate air into the ingredients.
  • Add CBD oil to the mixture. Adding CBD at this stage helps to maintain its potency.
  • Gradually add milk into the mixture until you achieve the intended consistency.
  • Cover the batter for about 10 minutes to allow gluten strands to stretch.
  • Pour the batter into the baking tin.
  • Insert it in the middle of the oven
  • Set the oven timer for about 60-65 minutes.
  • Check the progress of your cake. However, do not regularly open the oven as you may incorporate cold air into the oven. Cold air may make your bread sink.
  • Insert a toothpick through the middle of the bread. If it comes out clean, your bread is ready. If not, allow it to bake for a few minutes.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Turn it out onto a rack to cool before serving.
