Whole Grain Healthy Banana Bread

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.

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Rating: Unrated
2170
This is my mom's dense, excellent, and definitely unhealthy banana nut bread recipe. It's always completely gone in minutes. This is great at parties, but hazardous at home. HEALTH WARNINGS: EBNB may be habit forming. A very flexible recipe that will accommodate changes based on what you have on hand. Use any type of fat in place of the butter, such as shortening or oil. It works with either brown or white sugar too.

I thought my mom made the best zucchini bread - until I added lemon! This is a wonderful, light zucchini bread that's not too sweet.
