I always jump at opportunities to attend live events during the holidays. I also love learning new recipes. Today I am happy to share the best banana bread recipe to make.
This means I get to connect with other bloggers and media networks I work with regularly. I was thinking back earlier today. This year I have now attended 2 live events and 1 blog conference and I am really happy with my progress. I have learned so so much!
Thank you to Minute® Rice for sponsoring this article. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
My experience at the Minute® Rice Live Party you was so nice and welcoming because I saw some familiar faces. It felt like a nice reunion. I love these So Cal gals. It’s such a fun opportunity to laugh, mingle, and connect.
Since the theme of this party was to wear your “Ugly Holiday Sweater.”
I found the most amazing LED light-up sweater at a grocery store in all the places. This sweater was quite the conversation starter too. All the ladies at the event were very complimentary.
I learned a lot at this live event too! I learned that there are many ways you can use Minute® Rice! I sampled many of the dishes so I decided to make my favorite one for you today.
With the seasons changing, everyone is gearing up for the Holidays. Make a nutritious and delicious dish using an original recipe and Minute® Rice that you and your family love and that take little to no time away from family time and that is perfect for the holiday season.

Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is the newest addition from Minute Rice. It is a blend of four gluten-free, 100% whole grains, including long-grain brown rice, Thai red rice, wild rice, and quinoa.
It conveniently cooks in 10 minutes. Plus, Minute® Multi-Grain Medley comes in pre-portioned bags, making it even easier to prep for your family.
I decided to make the best banana bread recipe for myself with the newest addition to Minute® Rice.
Here is the recipe!
- 1 bagMinute® Multi-Grain Medley, uncooked
- non-stick cooking spray
- 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 up pecans, chopped
- 2 cups baking mix
Mix all the ingredients together for the best banana bread recipe. Preheat your over for 350 degrees. Mine took about an hour to bake all the way through.
I always love an opportunity to use my chalkboard plate. It is great when I am entertaining.
Doesn’t this dish look amazing? Can I also tell you how delicious it is?
I had such a fun time making the easy dish. I am inspired to take it with me to my next holiday party!
Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a perfect way to introduce new grains to your families’ diets and also plus-up some of your traditional dishes.
It’s an approachable staple since it cooks quickly but can still make a typical meal feel special since the whole grains included give it a nice texture and look.
