Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread (from Allrecipes.com)
1/3 cup canola oil
½ cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mashed bananas
1 ¾ cup whole wheat flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup hot water
½ cup chopped nuts
In a large bowl, beat oil and honey together. Add eggs and mix well. Stir in bananas and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Add baking soda to hot water, stir to mix, and then add to batter. Blend in chopped nuts. Spread batter into a greased 9X5 loaf pan.
Bake at 325 degrees for 55-60 minutes. Cool on wire rack for ½ hour before slicing.
FYI - I frequently put in more then "1 cup" of mashed bananas. More is better...right???
The bread should be nicely browned and firm to the touch.
I love bananas and this has become my "go to" recipe when I have browned bananas on my counter. If you love banana bread and are willing to try a "healthier" version I think this will fill the bill! Try it...you'll like it!
