Quick Banana Wheat Germ Bread

IF you have not prechopped your nuts and Cranberries, I would wait to preheat my oven, till that is finished. less it is cold and the extra heat is a plus. (I can be very slow.) Here in Florida, I put a much loved GE Table Top Oven outside and bake in the summers, but in the cold, I am happy to bake inside, sort of a combo of heating my home, making it smell wonderful and of course baking this quick bread.

Also, I am very slow chopper of stuff, so you might be very quick.... so time to prepare is so unknown. And I do all with just a knife.... no fancy machines.
