Whole Wheat Banana Bread

This is an easy Banana quick bread that my kids love to eat when they get home from school!

Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir well

Pour into a greased 9×5 inch loaf dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and nuts.


Bake at 325 for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the dough. If the top is getting too brown cover loosely with foil for the last 5-10 minutes.

Serve with plenty of butter! Enjoy!
