Instructions Step - 1

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center. Mash banana with a fork until a chunky applesauce consistency.

Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk just until combined. Do not overmix, the batter should be lumpy.
