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 :)

How to Make Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 8-by-5-by-3 inch loaf pan.
  • 2Combine 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)
  • 3If 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
  • 4Pour banana mixture over flour mixture and add walnuts (if you're using them). Stir with a rubber spatula just until blended
  • 5Pour 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.
  • 6Cool on rack before removing from the pan.
  • 7I'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!
