  • Step 1

    Add 3 cups of water to the pot, then spray the bottom of the Ninja Loaf Pan with nonstick spray and dust with flour.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, whisk together the bananas, oil, milk, egg, vanilla, and sugar until smooth. Stir in the remaining ingredients until the mixture is evenly combined into a batter.

  • Step 3

    Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Use a butter knife to create a subtle line down the center of the bread.

  • Step 4

    Place the pan on the bottom layer of the Deluxe Reversible Rack in the lower position, then place the rack in the pot. Close the lid and move slider to STEAMCRISP.

  • Step 5

    Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 300°F, and set time to 30 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin cooking (PRE will display for approx. 20 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, remove the rack and pan and allow to cool for about 30 minutes before slicing.
