Banana Nut Bread

An all time favorite:

Buy Walnuts here
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1-1/2 cups ripe, mashed bananas (3 large)
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup butter or margarine

2 Eggs, beaten
2 tsps baking powder
1/4 cup light vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup dates or apricots, chopped

Mix all dry ingredients together. Mash the ripe bananas. Cream the honey and butter/oil and blend in the bananas. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour dust a 4" x 8" loaf pan....

Little by little fold the dry mixture, honey mix, and beaten eggs together in a bowl. When fairly uniform pour into the pan and level the batter.

Bake 70 minutes or longer until the crust is golden brown and a toothpick comes out dry. Storing the wrapped bread in the cupboard for a few days develops a richer flavor.
