Making banana bread is great for all those bananas you know you won’t be eating. Make sure the bananas for your bread are ripe. Ripe bananas are browned peels and are really squishy on the inside. So let’s get started.
The ingredients for whole wheat banana bread are:
3 ripe bananas, peeled
1/3 cup of melted butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of baking soda
A pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of walnut pieces (optional )
Preheat the oven to 350°F
Prepare the bread loaf pan by buttering it.
In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth.
Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
Mix in the baking soda and salt.
Stir in the brown sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract.
Mix in the whole wheat flour.
Stir in the walnut pieces.
Pour the batter into the buttered loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour at 350°F.
Cool, slice and serve!
Happy Superbowl Sunday!
