This recipe was modified from my mother to make it not only delicious but also nutritious. Including ingredients such as flax, wheat germ, whole grain flour and vanilla improve quality without the sacrificing taste! From a registered dietitian nutritionist and mom, I hope you enjoy this as much as our family does! My children thought it tasted so good that I should enter it in a I did here! —Erica M.

What You'll Need
  • 4 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup expeller pressed canola oil
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Whole wheat white flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup finely ground walnuts (omit for nut allergies)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, mash the bananas. Then add the sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla and stir.
  2. In a separate medium sized bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, flax, wheat germ, walnuts (I grind them in a mini food processor, but you could also leave them chopped if preferred), baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet. Then, pour into greased loaf pan. Bake in preheated oven for about 55 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!
