Kelly’s Going-Bananas Banana Bread

I know, I know, we all have great banana bread recipes. But this, I PROMISE you, is worth a try. My girls, who don’t even LIKE bananas are on this stuff like white on rice.

It’s heavy on the sugar, but also uses 100% whole wheat flour and olive oil. For me, it’s a case of giving them something sweet while still making sure that it at least has some nutritious value (a fair amount of protein and good fat). I’m also struggling with going BACK on the carni-vegan bandwagon, so anything I can make that tastes yummy and does not involve dairy is great!

You can also use loaf pans of different sizes...simply adjust your baking time.
