Whole Wheat Banana Bread

We are excited to have the incredibly talented Angela, from Handmade in the Heartland, back again this month to share a bit of yumminess with you. This recipe for Whole Wheat Banana Bread is the perfect comfort food for those lazy weekend mornings or even an afternoon treat! Take it away Angela…..

I love to bake and one of my husband’s favorite things is banana bread.  I love making banana bread because it makes me feel so thrifty by not throwing out old bananas, am I the only one who feels this way? I kind of hate throwing out food and I do it way more than I’d care to admit.  So making banana bread makes me feel good.

A couple years ago I made a goal to use whole wheat flour in replacement of all-purpose as much as possible.  After trying it out on almost every recipe I have baked I realized its really not hard and a lot of the time you can’t tell a whole lot of difference, especially in cookies and quick breads.  The texture if a little heartier and maybe not as “fluffy” a little more dense, but it tastes great and makes me feel better about feeding it to my kids.  Whatever gets rid of my mommy guilt, right?

This recipe comes from my mother-in-law Vicki’s kitchen.  Matt always lets me know if its a good batch like his mom makes.  😉  I’ve decided the key is to have really really overripe bananas, like gross turned black and the fruit is actually brown.  Every time I wait that long I get really delicious bread. So wait until you think they are over-ripe and then wait a few days more.
