Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and sugar.

Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.

In a small bowl, place the bacon and remaining ¼ cup of flour; toss until bacon is lightly coated.

Fold flour-coated bacon into the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake for 70-80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool in pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes before inverting the bread onto the wire rack to cool completely.

Cut and serve.
