How to make Instant Pot Banana Bread Using egg Bite Molds.

Oven Directions and Variations Below

Prepare the Egg Bite Molds:

Mix Wet Ingredients:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, melted butter, vanilla extract, and the beaten egg. Mix well.

Add Sugar:

  • Stir in the granulated sugar until fully incorporated.

Combine Dry Ingredients:

  • In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.

Incorporate Dry Ingredients:

  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture, mixing until just combined. Avoid overmixing.

Optional Add-Ins:

  • If you're using nuts, chocolate chips, or dried fruit, fold them into the batter.

Fill the Molds:

  • Spoon the banana bread batter into the greased egg bite molds, filling each cavity about 2/3 full.

Cover the Molds:

Pressure Cook:

  • Place the trivet in the Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water. Carefully place the covered egg bite molds on the trivet.

  • Close the Instant Pot lid, set the vent to sealing, and select the pressure cook function. Cook on high pressure for about 10-12 minutes. The exact time may vary depending on your Instant Pot model, so adjust as needed.

Natural Release:

  • Allow the Instant Pot to release pressure naturally for about 5 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.

Cool and Serve:

  • Carefully remove the egg bite molds from the Instant Pot and let the banana bread bites cool for a few minutes. Once they are cool enough to handle, gently remove them from the molds.
