Whole Grain Healthy Banana Bread

Whole Grain Healthy Banana Bread

Made  times

"Don't let the healthy name fool you, this banana bread is moist and full of flavor. Whole grains, high fiber and low fat and sugar are just the added benefits. My family devours it! This can also be made in 4 mini loaf pans, just bake for 25 to 30 minutes at the same temperature."
