Healthy Banana Bread

Oh, this morning was glorious; I was able to make Banana Bread… so yummy! And I would even say healthy. I mean, I guess healthy can be a relative term… this is a healthy banana bread recipe that I got from my mom. Some might argue bread is not healthy but it our house it is a treat and a healthy option to sugary cereals.

healthy banana bread

1 1/2 Cups of whole weat flour

1/2 Cup of Sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup wheat germ

3 medium, ripe bananas mashed (about 1 cup)

1/4 cup milk

2 Tbsp. canola oil

4 egg whites

Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the wheat germ. Add all remaining ingredients and beat until well blended.

Place in 1 oiled 8″X4″ pan, bake for 1 hour @ 350 degrees


Place in 3 mini loaf pans (oiled and ) bake for 35 minutes @ 350 degrees

** alternatives for Wheat Germ- you can use really finely chopped nuts or flax seed. On the loafs I made today I used 1/4 cup chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup ground flax seed.**

I love the ease of this recipe and that it only dirties one bowl… no need to have more dishes to do… my least favorite part of cooking and baking : )
