Whole Wheat Banana Bread

Whole Wheat Banana Bread created by Reidheadswife

I actually abandoned my "family" banana bread in favor of this one... It's more a like a cake than a bread. I have increased the bananas from the original recipe, and I prefer to omit the nuts. I like mine warm with butter on top. Yummy!

ingredients

directions

  • Melt butter.
  • Put the butter, sugar, bananas and eggs in a blender. Blend until nice and smooth.
  • Now transfer to a mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together flours, salt, and baking soda.
  • Add dry ingredients to banana mixture alternately with hot water.
  • Stir in chopped nuts.
  • Cut a piece of waxed or parchment paper the size of the bottom of your loaf pan.
  • (This helps the loaf come out in one piece while still warm).
  • Put the paper in the loaf pan and spray the pan well with non-stick spray.
  • Scoop the batter into the pan.
  • Bake in a preheated 325 degree F oven for one hour and 10 minutes.
  • Test with a cake tester to make to make sure it's done.
  • Sometimes it takes a little bit longer.
  • If the top gets too brown, cover it with a piece of aluminum foil so it doesn't get too much darker.

    I made this when my sister was visiting and she requested a "healthy" dessert. She didn't like it. I've had better and worse "healthier" banana breads. This was okay. I think it's worth trying once, but I wouldn't make it again.

    This is a perfect recipe moist and easy no oil. Went to a health food store and made sure my wheat flour was one with protein it it.

    This was an easy recipe to follow and I really enjoyed how it turned out - tasty. I substituted the butter with apple sauce, used 100% whole wheat white flour, only used 1/2 c of brown sugar and added some raisins to make up for a bit of sweetness. Next time I may also use 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda. I had to bake my loaf for longer, but may be due to the altitude? I will definitely use this recipe again.

    I made this recipe into 24 muffins. I cooked them at 325 for 25 minutes and they were perfect! I also used brown sugar instead of granular sugar. They were so moist, and mostly eaten within half an hour out of the oven! I am going to toss all of my other banana bread recipes... this one's a keeper! Thanks for sharing!
