Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Bread

Healthy, tasty and easy to prepare!

servings: 15 slices
time: 1:30 hour

½ cup butter (4 ounces)
½ cup brown sugar (3 ¾ ounces)
1 tsp vanilla extract
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 large bananas, cut into chunks (about 1 pound before peeling)
¼ cup honey (3 oz)
2 large eggs
2 cups whole wheat flour (8 oz)
½ cup chopped walnuts (2 oz)

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9.25x5.25x2.75 in loaf pan.
2 – In the mixer, beat together butter and sugar until smooth.
3 – Add vanilla, salt, and bananas, beating until well combined, but leaving some small chunks of banana.
4 – Beat in honey and eggs.
5 – Add flour, walnuts and baking soda, stirring until smooth.
6 – Spoon the batter into the pan, smoothing the top. Let it rest at room temperature for 10 minutes.
7 – Bake for 50 minutes, then gently put a piece of aluminum foil across the top, to prevent over-browning. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.

8 – Remove bread from the oven and allow the loaf to cool for 10 minutes before removing from loaf pan.

  • Add raisin or Brazilian nuts to the batter.
