Although both of my sisters love to bake cookies as much as I do, with most other things I am the baker of our generation in my immediate family. This banana nut bread is on my most requested list :)

Serves:

Makes 1 8x5x3 inch loaf

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

55 Min

Ingredients

2 c
whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp
wheat germ
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
2
eggs
2 c
cut up ripe banana
1/2 c
honey
1/4 c
vegetable oil
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 8-by-5-by-3 inch loaf pan.
2
Combine flour, wheat germ, baking soda, and salt in large bowl. (For a less dense loaf, substitute 1 cup of white flour for 1 cup of the whole wheat flour)
3
If you have a food processor, combine eggs, banana, honey, vegetable oil, lemon juice and vanilla until well blended. If you are like me and don't have a food processor, I just mash it all together real good with a potato masher and give it a few good stirs with a rubber spatula
4
Pour banana mixture over flour mixture and add walnuts (if you're using them). Stir with a rubber spatula just until blended
5
Pour into prepared pan and bake until sides pull away from the pan and a pick inserted in the center comes out clean, between 45- 55 minutes.
6
Cool on rack before removing from the pan.
7
I'm not overly fond of walnuts; I prefer pecans. Sometimes I take about a cup of chopped pecans, toss them in a bowl with about a tablespoon of melted butter, stir them around in a hot skillet for a couple of minutes, let them cool off some and throw them in instead of walnuts. I like the toasted pecan flavor with the bananas!
