I was out of butter so used vegetable oil. Great recipe for overripe bananas.

After I put this in the oven I realized that the recipe didn't call for a levener of any kind. Whole wheat flour already makes breads more dense, so this was very thick and dense. I am not sure if this was an oversight or if it was supposed to be this way. We found the end result to be somewhat bland. Also I had to bake it for about 45 mins before it even begin to firm up and start to brown. I would probably not make this one again without adding some baking soda for levening, and maybe some cinnamon, or nutmeg, or something for more flavor. Sorry.
