Cinnamon and Whole Wheat Banana Bread

Recipe by momaphet

This is a delicious banana bread that is not too sweet. Carry a copy of the recipe if you take the bread with you anywhere, because people always ask for it. Using whole wheat pastry flour gives this a ligher texture than regular whole wheat flour. This mix also make great muffins. Bake around 20 mins.

Like Mmmama I subbed some applesauce in place of the oil and some egg beaters in place of whole eggs. I made muffins (got 12) and baked them for 28 minutes. I liked the whole wheat idea and they had a lovely texture when warm out of the oven; however, they weren't as flavorful as we'd hoped. My 13-yo DS commented that they needed more cinnamon and I would agree. Then again, DH ate 3 for breakfast this morning.
