Banana Bread

I am not a huge fan of banana bread made with 1 cup of oil. It just leaves a big greasy spot on my napkin, and my arteries cringe! This recipe is one I have developed over the years, and which my husband's co-workers at the steel mill ask for. It only uses 1/3 cup of butter rather than an entire cup of oil, so it has to be a little healthier, right?? :)

1
