medium-size ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups
white whole wheat flour
Wow, what a great recipe! I did health it up a little more. I used all whole wheat white flour, I used ground flax seed, organic raisins, bananas, eggs and Nancy's nonfat vanilla yogurt. I did cut the sugars by half because my bananas were REALLY ripe and I added 3/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. I also used pecans because we don't care for walnuts. I made these into muffins and I got 18 large muffins. The smell of these was really out of this world. We haven't tried them yet (they're for snack today/breakfast tomorrow) but I know it's going to be good. Thanks for a healthy recipe that incorporates more flax/oat bran!
Lovely, dense and moist. Not too sweet. Doubled recipe and added dried cranberries and dried plums to the raisin mix for a fruitier taste. Made a total of seven mini-tins with the batch, enough for the holiday give-away. This is a good one for the health conscious.
very dense and needs more bananas
This bread is dense and slightly moist. I've made some changes to it though. I used chopped prunes for raisins, ground flax seed, no sugar at all (so my bread was mildly sweet), greek non-fat yougurt, quick oats for bran. It's very filling. My kids liked it. I might try adding some honey or molasses next time and make it into muffins.
