Cinnamon and Whole Wheat Banana Bread

"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."

    Yum! This made for a tasty breakfast for us this morning. It became a bit of a hybrid recipe for us; I didn't have as many brown bananas in the freezer as I thought so I made up the difference with grated and squeezed zucchini. I also didn't have any eggs, so I used flaxseed for a substitute. For the flour I used mostly white wheat with some oat flour mixed in. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.

    These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly as written. This was my first time using wheat flour. I made these into muffins and cooked for 25 minutes. I didn't add the nuts. We all enjoyed these

    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.

    Yum, thanks! I really like this healthy recipe. I did make a few changes...used applesauce in place of the oil, eggbeaters instead of eggs, and to negate my health conscious efforts, I added 1/4 c. granulated sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to the top before cooking. I think it turned out great and I'll definitely be making again.
