One of the secrets of making great tasting banana bread is to use very ripe bananas. (Of course, adding a shot of bourbon, some toasted pecans and chocolate chips helps too!) To help prevent the bread from sticking, grease the bottom only of the slow cooker ceramic base with shortening or cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with a few teaspoons of Bisquick. Mix all the bread ingredients and pour batter into slow cooker.

Keep an eye on your bread while it's baking so it does not get overdone.) Uncover and remove ceramic base from cooker to cooling rack. Let cool 15 minutes. Loosen edge of bread with a thin metal spatula.
