Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • In a large bowl whisk together thoroughly:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional) 
  • In a separate bowl blend together
  • 6 tablespoons Stuarto’s All Natural Butter Flavored extra virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Fold in until combined:
  • 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 2)
  • 1/2 cup toasted chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

 

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350.  Thoroughly grease a standard loaf pan with one teaspoon of Stuarto’s All Natural Butter Flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Combine the wet ingredients in the bowl with the dry ingredients until just incorporated - do not over mix.  Scrape the batter into a pan and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a rack for 5 to 10 minutes before unmolding to cool completely on the rack.
