Dry ingredients
  • 3 very ripe bananas, skins and the fruit will be black (6 to 7 inches each)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar (loosely packed)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Liquid ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mash the bananas in a large bowl. Add the eggs to the bananas. Mix in the olive oil and the vanilla.

Mix together thoroughly in another bowl the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Be sure to break up any lumps in the brown sugar. Stir in the walnuts.

Gently stir the mixed dry ingredients into the liquids just until combined. A plastic spatula works best. Do not over mix or the bread will not rise.

Pour the batter into a coated loaf pan.

Bake for 60 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Makes 1 loaf with 8 slices
