Banana Health Nut Bread/Muffins

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by HawaiianBaker

Adapted from a favorite banana bread recipe, this banana bread recipe uses less butter, no sugar, and has lots of fiber. It tastes delicious too! It can be made into a bread loaf or muffins. If you don't have one of the ingredients you can supplement a little more of another similar one (i.e. oat bran for ground flax seed, or walnuts for another type of nuts).

Good flavor, but mine stayed gooey on the bottom, even though I eventually cooked them about twice as long as it says to. I think it needs a cup of wheat flour or so? I'll try it again some day with more flour...
