Whole Wheat Banana Bread

Derrick and I have been trying to eat only whole wheat for the past couple of weeks.  It has a lot of health benefits and we have actually found that we often like the taste of it better that non whole wheat products. 

Here is a yummy banana bread recipe I made using whole wheat!

1/3 cup  vegetable oil (I substituted applesauce)
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas (About 3 large bananas)
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup hot water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In large bowl, beat oil (or applesauce) and honey together. Add eggs, and mix well. Stir in bananas and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Add baking soda to hot water, stir to mix, and then add to batter. Blend in chopped nuts, if using.  Spread batter into a greased 9x15 inch loaf pan.

3.  Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 1/2 hour before slicing.
