Banana Bread (that I actually like!)

  • I do not like bananas- never have. Yet, while trying to avoid BOP and dealing with my daughter's allergies to eggs, nuts and soy, I've been forced to incorporate more bananas in my baking. We had some nanners that were going to go bad so I decided to make some bread with it. I combined a couple of recipes and come up with this and guess what? I actually liked it! The taste was not overly banana-y and I can appreciate the fact that it has whole wheat flour (and no eggs, nuts or soy) in it. I like to eat this bread with honey spread on top- yum!

  • cup milk
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1/2 cup butter , softened
