Banana Dinner Rolls

Banana Dinner Rolls

  • Author: Tiffany
  • Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield: 8 Servings 1x


If you’d like a more fluffy dinner roll, I suggest: (1) Adding anywhere from 1/2 cup of water or milk up to 1 cup. (2) Adding a teaspoon of Crisco for the yeast to feed on. (3) Warming the liquid and allowing your yeast to proof in the water or milk for 5 minutes before adding to the banana and vanilla mixture. (4) I typically use 1 tsp of yeast per 1 cup of flour. I would suggest increasing the yeast based on the amount of flour used.



2 ripe bananas, peeled

1 Tbsp vanilla

1 tsp  yeast

1 egg

1 tsp salt

2 1/3 C. all-purpose flour

2 Tbsp unsalted, melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • Peel and mash bananas together with the vanilla in a medium-size bowl.
  • Add egg, mix together
  • Add yeast, mix together
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and salt.
  • Add melted butter to banana mixture, and combine
  • Combine flour and banana mixture
  • Knead until dough comes together
  • Form into a ball and place inside a lightly greased bowl, cover, and set in a warm place to rise
  • Once dough has doubled, remove from bowl and shape into rolls
