Banana Bread Recipe for Tasty Tuesday


It's Tasty Tuesday and here's what I'll be baking today for an after-school treat for the kids. It freezes well and has been a family favorite for years. Plus--it's pretty healthy!

Banana Bread
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup applesauce
1 whole egg
1 egg white
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Combine these ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup wheat germ or ground flaxseed (optional but it adds a great texture!)

Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
Add 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake 60 minutes at 350. Check center of loaf to make sure it's fully done before removing from oven.
You can also make this into muffins or mini-muffins. Just pay attention to the bake time. When they're nicely brown on top, they're done.

Thanks, Angie, for hosting Tasty Tuesday!
