- 3 ripe bananas, mashed with a fork
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 cups whole wheat flour (I used un-bleached white because I didn't want to wake the kids with the grinder and it was great)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 Tblsp of ground flax seed meal
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients first, then mix in bananas, oil and honey. (If you measure out the oil first, when you pour out the honey, it will all slide cleanly out of the cup.)
Pour into oiled bread pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. Because it has lower fat you can take it out when there is a few crumbs left on the toothpick. Fight the urge to over-cook. This recipe is also great for muffins. Muffins are more like 20 minutes until done.
I found this recipe tonight because I was out of eggs and butter and had some ripe bananas begging to be turned into something delicious. The texture was a little heavier than an egg/butter recipe, but it was good to make something without dairy. A lot lower fat too!
