Bake and Share: Banana Bread

Whether it’s no sugar for Lent, a continued commitment to a New Year’s resolution or an attempt at a calmer playgroup, everyone could use a yummy recipe that won’t leave you with regret. This banana bread recipe has no sugar and is made with whole wheat flour, and is still a crowd pleaser- honest. It’s from Super Baby Food, by Ruth Yaron.

Preheat oven to 350˚ F.

Mix wet ingredients:
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (the riper the better)
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs beaten

In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients:
2 cups whole wheat flour
(if you don’t use this often keep it in the refrigerator)
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder

Combine dry into wet, then fold in:
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Bake in greased loaf pan for 50-60 minutes.

Cool, wrap, throw on a gift tag and make a neighbor very happy. But be warned, it makes your house smell fabulous so you might want to bake up two.
