Whole Wheat Banana Bread

This is a great, and easy recipe for banana bread. The original recipe uses white flour, but I wanted to make it a little healthier, so I used all whole wheat flour. It turned out really well. My boys gobbled it up. I like the edges of this bread the best, so I usually make it in mini loves, but this day I made one large loaf. Either way, it's great!


Whole Wheat Banana Bread
from my mommy

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas
1 TBSP lemon juice
2 cups whole wheat flour (I used King Arthur)
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chopped walnuts
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time until fluffy. Add bananas and lemon juice and mix well. In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry mixture to wet mixture all at once. After mixed well, add walnuts. Pour into greased loaf pan. You can use one large loaf pan or 2 mini loaf pans. Place in preheated oven and bake large loaf for 45-50 minutes and mini loaves for 24-26 minutes, or until center is set and a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.
