Doesn’t that look good? Well, I have the recipe, as promised. Created this one myself and everyone loved it! Yay! I tried to make it nutritious as well as delicious. Anyhow, to the recipe we go………..:)
Banana Bread – Preheat oven 350 degrees, grease 2 – 9x5x3 bread pans
1 Cup (2 sticks) butter at room temp.
2 1/3 C. Sugar……you can use half brown sugar for a little more flavor.
Cream butter and sugar till light & fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
1/3 Cup crushed Pineapple (don’t drain)
3 Cups mashed Bananas (approx. 6 large bananas)
2 tsp Vanilla
Blend in Pineapple, Bananas & Vanilla…then, in a separate bowl mix the next 5 ingredients.
2 Cups Flour (all-purpose)
1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup Flax Seed
2 tsp Baking Soda (I only used 1 tsp but didn’t realize it till afterwards…lol. Kids got me distracted and I used the 1/2 tsp twice. It was a little heavy but still tasted great.)
1 tsp Salt
After all dry ingredients are stirred well, add to creamed mixture, mixing well.
1 Cup chopped Nuts (walnuts or pecans…I use pecans)
1 Cup miniature Chocolate Chips
Fold in Nuts and Chocolate Chips. Pour mixture into pans and bake 60 – 75 minutes or till tester comes out clean. (I use a toothpick) cool in pan 10 minutes, then pop out and finish cooling on wire rack.
